Friends any time better than family: Study

December 04 : A research published in Personal Relationships, looked at data from nearly 2,80,000 people from almost 100 countries.

The study also analysed 7,500 adults separately, and revealed that people who had positive friendships were found to be healthier than those who were in a stressed or strained relationship with their friends. But the impact of good or bad family relationships was reported to be negligible.

This means that your relations with your family do not matter much when compared to those with your friends.

The benefits of having close pals increase as the respondents turn older, reinforcing the fact that long-lasting friendships provide the best support. Those friendships have stood the test of time.

Friends can provide much needed support when things get tough with relatives. While most of the things we do for our relatives may be out of some obligation, the same is not true for friends.

Friends are anytime better than family.
