Far too often, we put energy and work into our romantic relationships, but lose sight of our friendships. We become entwined in our own lives and focus on our partners only. We forget to call that friend, or make a lunch date to catch up. As distracted as we can get, it’s also vital to remember the people who were there from the beginning and who will always be by our sides. Here’s why having close friends is such an amazing thing and why you need to nurture your friendships, as much as you do your romantic loves:
1. They’re there to lean on when you need them most.
2. They just get you.
3. They give you independence.
4. They break it down for you.
5. They make everything a little better.
