Some people value their relationships greatly, while others view them as an optional part of life. Relationships are important, and we often forget just how important they can be. We often don’t realize this fact until we find ourselves in a tough situation with no one to rely upon. People need other people.
It’s true that this need varies from person to person. A hardcore introvert might get along just fine with a couple of good friends. A sociable extrovert needs significantly more interaction with others to be healthy and happy. It’s up to you to decide the level of contact you require with others.
Think about what you get from your relationships. How important are they to you? How many friends do you need to feel safe, secure, and happy? Everyone’s needs are different. Just be sure to give your relationships the attention they deserve so you can be happy and healthy.
