Friendship Day originated in South American countries and has been celebrated for many years. Then it seeped its way to many other countries, and now it’s famous worldwide. Today people all around the globe celebrate friendship day on the same day. In India, it is celebrated on the first Sunday of August; hence, it will arrive on July 30 since it is the Sunday before August starts.
The Importance Of Friendship Day
As its name implies, the day is celebrated to cherish the friends of our life. This works as a reminder to our friends and us that connections are important and how lucky we are to have some amazing friends in life. Friendship is the most natural and raw relationship we form naturally in our life.
All our blood relations are there from birth, but we form friendships with other people. Some of these friends stay there for a lifetime and support us at every stage; these friends become a part of our family and even more precious than our blood relations.
In friendship, there are no demands, no expectations, and no filters set. We don’t make friends by thinking with our brain; hence, there is no caste, creed, color, or anything regarding friendships. It is one such relation that happens from our hearts.
Just like a life partner, friendships are the essence of our life, without which we can’t imagine having fun and good life. Some people don’t have a partner or a lover, but there are very few people who don’t have friends.
Friends are not only there for chilling out and partying, but they play a very important role in determining our mental health. It has been found in various studies that people who have strong connections with other people are the healthiest, both physically and mentally. This is because we can only think of our physical welfare when we are mentally healthy.
Friends provide the supportive pillars and the emotional strength that makes us stand every time we feel like losing and giving up. People with fewer friends or no healthy connections are more prone to depression and suicidal thoughts.
Hence this friendship day, celebrate it wholeheartedly and let your friends know you value them.
