Relationships are important to us as humans. In general, we love socialising with family, friends, colleagues and even strangers.
Having good friends and close family members helps us to get us through tough times. We can vent to them, relax, and unwind with them, laugh with them, share funny or shocking stories about our daily experiences and they understand us.
This kind of interaction helps to improve our sense of worth, increases our happiness, reduces stress, and improves our mental and physical health.
