This Week | Have Good Friends

Friendships have a huge impact on your happiness. Good friends provide comfort, support, and prevent loneliness. However, you can tell when a friendship is toxic: It’s all about them and their problems, they’re easily angered or jealous, they don’t respect you nor your boundaries, they’re trying to change you, there’s always drama, and you feel uncomfortable around them. By surrounding yourself with good friends who promote positivity and a healthy environment, it can even add significant years to your life.
