How to maintain a healthy relationship with friends and family?
Loneliness and a lack of human interaction can be a trigger for mental health problems such as low self-esteem and depression. We are social creatures and evolved in groups. For our communities to exist in the first place, friendships had to be formed. As such, relationships can be thought of as forming the very fabric of society itself. Without family and friends, it is unlikely we would have altruism such as charity outside of these groups.
People tend to gravitate to others who are similar to them. These people may be experiencing similar life events, like having babies or putting their kids through the same school, or following the same religion. Sometimes it can require effort to diversify a friendship group.
Like all relationships, those with friends and family relationship don’t always go smoothly and when they go wrong, because of their very closeness, they can hurt all the more. We need friends, but cultivating the right friendship groups and navigating the complex relationships of a family is difficult.
