A Friend shared this article with me and I want to share it with you.
Why do I have a variety of friends who are all different in character?
Some of them can be considered marginal even.
How do I get on with them all?
I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me...
With one of them I am polite
I joke with another friend
I sit down and talk about serious matters with one of them
With another I giggle at every silly thing
I have my wine with one
And dance with another
I listen to one friend's problems and give them advice
Then I listen to another advising me
They are all like pieces of a jigsaw,
When completed they form a treasure box
A treasure of friends!
They are my friends, who understand me better than myself
who support me through good days and bad days.
Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health.
Dr. Oz calls them Vitamins F (from Friends) and counts the benefits of friends to our well being.
Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes. If you take Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your tense moments, it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50 %.
I am so happy that I have a stock of Vitamins F!
In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them.
We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together, not forgetting
to open our mouths big to swallow the floating vitamins F!
Thank you for being one of my vitamins!
