Why Friendships Are Important And Win A Friendship Bracelet Ends 08/08

Did you know the 30th of July is World Friendship Day? Since 2011 this has been a day when friendships have been celebrated across the world. Let's have a look at what friendships are really about and how you can win a friendship bracelet with Boutique Of Diamonds. This is an advertorial in conjunction with them, but all words and opinions are my own.

Most of us have several friends but maybe a couple of closer friends that really matter to us, especially as we get older. The friends that we can confide in, are there when you are heartbroken, are there when you really need someone to listen. Friends and especially good friends are invaluable. Friends are all different but ideally, good friends should have these qualities below.

Emotional support

friends

Good friends can help with emotional support. They are the ones that are there and listen to your moans, your worries and are there for you in a crisis. They are there for you day or night. If you have a partner they also provide emotional support but a friendship bond is one that you can be totally yourself, be vulnerable and just let those tears flow without worrying about the mascara rolling down your face.

Boost your confidence

Good friends boost your confidence. They are kind to you, they care for you, they say nice things to you and you know they care. This in turn boosts your confidence and your happiness. If you have friends around you that don't make you happy, are mean to you and drain you in their company, then ditch them, they are not real friends.

Give constructive criticism


Although they love you and are kind to you they are also good at giving constructive criticism, when you ask for it. They can give you another perspective you maybe hadn’t thought of and their criticism isn't destructive because they want what is best for you. Good friends are effective at giving criticism that is helpful, showing you what you can do to improve your situation.

They can make you laugh


Humour is subjective but often good friends make you laugh. Being with them is a joy and you feel uplifted in their company. I have a good friend like this that just exudes joy and it's fun being around her. I always look forward to meeting up with her because she's a brilliant friend and we get each other’s sense of humour.

Give you a sense of belonging and being needed



Friends can make you feel needed and give you that sense of belonging. They become part of your tribe. Of course, friends are all individual and each friend has different strengths so it's good to have a few different friends around you. Friends that you share interests with, that you go to an exercise class with, friends that you went to school with, friends that you met on Facebook, they don't need to be the closest friends to be part of your tribe.


Sometimes we take good friends for granted so why not make a lunch date with them on the 30th of July to celebrate friendships, or give them a gift of a friendship bracelet like the ones above from Boutique Of Diamonds?

Priced at £95, this simple and stylish bracelet is easy to wear and will quickly become a favourite piece of jewellery. Entry is easy via the Rafflecopter app. So go and enter and good luck!
