In honour of Friendship Day, I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite friendship quotes and what they mean to me.
‘Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born’
THE ONLY THERAPY YOU NEED… I love this quote – you really can’t beat a chat with a good friend when things are not going to plan! I know when I moved from Leeds where I had lived for a long time, to Wales where I knew no-one (apart from my husband) the thing I missed the most, was being able to pop round to my friends houses for a cuppa (or glass of wine) and a moan and much needed laugh! A chat on the phone was a pretty good second substitute though. You can’t underestimate the importance of support from friends – it is often seen as a big factor that can help people cope with stressful and difficult times in their lives.
Having lived in a number of different places, and had friends move to different places, this is something I really believe. It doesn’t matter how often you see or speak with friends, the good ones will always be there to hold your hands in hard times and celebrate with you in the good times. Distance doesn’t have to be the end of good friendships.
