Friendships are crucial to your life quality

So yesterday I read this article. Apparently, friendships are not just some fun thing we want. It is really important to keep maintaining friendships.

I feel bad for loosing touch with so many people in a past few years. It's more hard to keep up with everyone than I expected. However, I think it is not quantity, but the quality thing. I am guessing the reason it is so hard to keep with everyone is because it's impossible to keep up with every single person you ever met in some class. However, I am trying my best to keep up with people I actually spend a lot of time with. I moved away to school and still talk to my few good friends I have almost every day even it is just a short text. I made a lot of new friends recently and hope to maintain these friendships for a long time. 

What are your advice on keeping friendships alive?

    @Deimante Sefleryte 16 I definitely agree that its more of a quality than quantity thing. I have been blessed to have a couple of best friends who have been there since childhood but i've also met some of the greatest friends just a couple of months ago. It really is hard to keep in touch even with social media as we get older but what matters the most is being grateful for the great friends you have now <3

      @Ameris Jimenez  Yes, as an article mentioned it is important to feel part of something. You can have a lot of friends and still not feel part of anything. And having few friends still helps to fell connected to them. :) Being grateful is very important too, I totally agree. That probably helps to keep the friendship going, if the other person sees you actually appreciate them.
