Learn about Friendship Month

We rely on our friends in one way or another and we all require friendships to feel emotionally and socially fulfilled. Friendship Month is all about highlighting the importance of friendship and celebrating what it can do for us.

Social connections can keep problems at bay and ensure we’re happier and better balanced as we move through life. It’s important to stop and recognize the importance of our friendships from time to time.

A lot of things change in life, but one thing that never goes away and never loses its importance is friendship. We all need it and we all cherish it. The time we spend with friends is vitally important and those are the times we value most of all. Friendship Month aims to recognize that fact.

Friendship Month is something you can recognize privately by spending more time with your friends and appreciating them. Or even getting back in touch with people who you used to be friends with but have since lost touch with.

For other people, Friendship Month is an opportunity to reach out to new people and make friends with them. We’re never too old to make new friends and that’s something that more people are now realizing; in part, thanks to Friendship Month.

History of Friendship Month

It’s now been 10 years since Friendship Month started and many new friendships have been forged in that time. It’s also encouraged many people to finally reach out to old friends they’ve been meaning to reconnect with for a long time.

It all started with the intervention of the people at Oddfellows who came up with the idea of Friendship Month to bring people together and help people to beat loneliness by meeting other people looking for new friendships. It continues to thrive and it’s no surprise when you consider just how important these social ties are to us all.
