    Hi my name is Mady and for my health class I decided to study relationships and their effect on a person’s social health and happiness. I found all of your information interesting and helpful in my research on this topic. I don’t think people realize how much our friends can truly affect our health, and I think your post did a great job of highlighting that. Thanks for posting!

    I enjoyed reading the article, and I can’t help but agree more! It’s nice to hear from my best friend, telling me what’s going on in her life. Also, it tickles me to ask if I can come visit her, so we can have “girl” time. I’ll go visit her when I get the chance. 🙂

    I like this article, but unfortunately not everyone has the choice. Not everyone can just go out and make friends It is harder for some people than others. When I read this, I think, well I am going to die young then.

    I love this and couldn’t agree more! I love when I’m busy at work and that random text from a friend pops in. Makes me smile:) Good friends make me feel energized and happy!

    It is inspiring information, but at the same time, for me at this stage, at least, it’s also disappointingly sad and frustrating when a friend that I want to reach out to or whom I think can contribute to the above benefits is distant, guarded, disinterested, and all but “gone” in terms of their sincerely availability and support in action rather than just words. I have other friends, of course, and why I fixate on this one specific “disappointment” is still something I am working on.

    This person used to embody practically all of above. Now, it’s testament as to why not all “friends” are created equal.
