The beauty of companionship

Is life better when you are alone in solitude to only have yourself to depend on and yourself to look after and yourself as your company? Or is it better to have your life full of friends that will depend on the support of each other and will help each other when you are in need of it?
This is a very important question that is difficult, but not impossible, to answer. With science we are able to figure out many mysteries of life and can answer some of the most difficult questions due to empirical data collected by the research of those who asked themselves this very question: “What are the advantages or disadvantages of being alone rather than having friends?”
Well now we have the answer.
Loneliness is a sad existence:
Katharine Gammon, head researcher at ACMA says, “Loneliness can send a person down a path toward bad health, and even more intense loneliness.” She goes on to say that new research suggests there is a direct biological link between being lonely and being ill.
Having a relationship with somebody can increase a person’s life expectancy because of the bond they share with others. Loneliness itself can cause ill health and is just as bad and can even lead to alcoholism, depression, anxiety, heart disease and suicide.
Having contact with friends and family can help deter these negative health concerns. John Cacioppo, a University of Chicago psychologist and one of the top loneliness experts says that loneliness is strongly connected to genetics. Other contributing factors include situational variables, such as physical isolation, moving to a new location and divorce.
The death of someone significant in a person's life can also lead to feelings of loneliness. Loneliness can also be a symptom of a psychological disorder such as depression.
The problem with loneliness is that a person may still be lonely even when surrounded by many friends and caring family members. The perception that nobody cares about them is what causes feelings of loneliness.
1. Recognize that loneliness is a sign that something needs to change.
2. Understand the effects that loneliness has on your life, both physically and mentally.
3. Consider doing community service or another activity that you enjoy. These situations present great opportunities to meet people and cultivate new friendships and social interactions.
4. Focus on developing quality relationships with people who share similar attitudes, interests and values with you.
Friends look out for each other:
Jim Morrison, head researcher at APA says “A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.”
Friends will help others in times of need, they’ll have someone else watching out for them instead of just relaying on themselves and in return they’ll also look out for them, a real...
