As human beings we all naturally crave companionship and friendships with others. No matter how much time you devote to improving your mental and emotional health, you will still need the company of others to feel and be your best. Humans are social creatures with emotional needs for relationships and positive connections to others.. We’re not meant to survive, let alone thrive, in isolation. Our social brains crave companionship, even when experience has made us shy and distrustful of others.
With that being said, establishing healthy relationships is crucial to a healthy mental state of mind and being. Traditionally, people who are emotionally healthy are in control of their emotions and their behavior. They are able to handle life’s inevitable challenges, build strong relationships, and lead productive, fulfilling lives. When bad things happen, they’re able to bounce back and move on. Therefore, it’s important to take note and gage where your relationships are at so you can make necessary changes with others involved in your life.
