Your relationship with yourself is your closest and most
important relationship. What kind of relationship with yourself have you
chosen – a judging, a

anxiety and other types of mental illness. Having friends mitigates the
physiological consequences of stress.
Case in Point
Benefits of Friendship
In a Yale University study of 194 heart attack patients,
those who reported emotional support were three times more likely to be
alive six months after their attack than subjects who had no support.
In a study at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburg,
