Why do we need to talk to a friend?
And what if he doesn’t understand?…
At some point in life, a person becomes frustrated and suffocated that no one is there for him and no one wants to talk to him. That is the point where one must take the initiative to talk to a friend, and not only in frustration anytime if one gets a chance, he should talk to a friend to get some clarity of thoughts! What happens is the talk resets the thinking process or way of thinking, and one gets control over their emotions to reason with.
Have you ever noted the last time you had a good talk with your friend?
In the current scenario, what happens most often is that a person does not get the chance to express his/her thoughts to anyone. That affects the mental health of a person. so, take a break and have a good talk with your friend, and revive yourself from a stressful day.
Then what to do?
Sometimes, having outing plans like movies, picnics, or playing some sport or any fun activity helps you to resolve the misunderstanding and have some clarity of thoughts.
As the famous quote says, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” the friend is the one who is there for you in your hard times. So if a friend of yours needs any advice or you’d like to give him a suggestion, you should talk to him. There are some points in one’s life when nothing goes as planned, and the person becomes mentally disturbed or very confused.
From what I have experienced, a friend of mine has become socially closed, and gloomy, and has had a change in his nature, and from that, I got that something happened or something is disturbing him.
That’s when I started talking to him to observe rather than directly ask about his state; after a while, he opened up and began talking to me about what was actually on his mind. He was stressed about so many problems, and that led to a frustrating state where small things became irritating to him.
But after opening up to me and just stating his problems to me, he realized that these small things don’t matter and aren’t worth worrying about. So what happened that his concentration that was disturbed because of some problem was regained by him just by talking? And that’s why he got the clarity of his thoughts.
It’s okay if the friend doesn’t understand the whole problem. As long as you get clarity, the therapy works perfectly. That is free therapy.

As I am staying as paying a guest. All I have my friends. Sometimes you feel low and depressed, just talk to your friend. They can give you therapy without any consultation fees. When someone starts talking about their problem, they realize half of the problem is over when they start talking about the problem.This thing very well explains the importance of having a good friend in your life, which everyone should have in their life.
As the famous quote says and as mentioned in the blog “A Friend in need is a Friend indeed”, I feel it is correctly said that a friend’s therapy is the assistance that friends provide might be mental, social, and even practical. They make us laugh, lift our spirits, and assist us in overcoming feelings of isolation. Friends are there to listen to our difficulties, to encourage us in our aims, to keep us motivated, and to provide perspective on the situation at hand. I personally feel that making and maintaining friendships is an investment that may yield dividends in terms of health and happiness for many years to come.
This blog is nicely written and explaining us all how a friend can start a conversation just by observing his friend’s behavior, I think this is the best thing a friend can do rather than giving parties and gifts just sit with your friend and listen to him and share what’s on his mind this not only release his mental pressure it also giving him the feeling of being cared. And I can relate to this so much because I am the one who usually listens to all my friends and was always with them in their tough times to make sure that they should not felt left alone as I felt that for so long so i understand how it feel to be alone when no one approaches you.

This blog shows a great mixture of how our works and accomplishments go with our dreams, yes, it is true that every one of us has dreams of which some are very good some are the very best, and many times we get some random dreams which are part of our daily happenings for example dream of the person you spend your most of the time or the person you love. But we remember the dreams which are either very good or bad, the good dreams are part of hard work which we put in to reach the target that helps us to feel the joy and these dreams help us to be more motivated and bad ones are just a negative part of our life. But this blog tells us that dreams are the ones that help us to keep moving. And this blog shows you have good critical thinking to dive much deeper into dreams philosophy.
Indeed, as I am socially restricted, I can relate to this; obviously, you can’t carry your close friend wherever you are. I felt the same when I joined this college. Everything and everyone was new to me. Having no friends after having so many people around me, I felt stuck, unable to share anything. Then, gradually, I made two or three friends and sharing with them actually works as a form of mental therapy. They can help you to stop overthinking, listen to your problems, give you emotional support and bear your tantrums all day. I’m thankful to them.
As i am a hosteler, I can surely relate to this feeling. Before I shifted to Jaipur, I was very attached to my friends and was equally loved and respected. But since i moved for my further studies to Jaipur i noticed huge difference in my behavioral pattern and personality traits. I used to be bubbly and cheerful, but as i moved to Jaipur i felt lonely and a competitive environment just boosted my frustration. But luckily after a while i made new friends and they helped me by talking to me and i am now in my best capabilities to achieve my set goals and targets without compromising on my mental as well as my physical health.
