While working as a student in psych nursing, I think that a lot of the people I interview really just needed a friend, or a few good friends, at a low point in their lives, and they would not have sunk so far or so fast.

What they needed from a friend was emotional support and honest feedback.

It could be that friends were giving that, and they were not in a place to receive it; I am sure that happens at times.

However, I think it is also true that people who are connected to other people are going to always do better than they would have done with no friends.

Friendship is a very powerful thing.

Life changing.
