More reasons to be a great communicator:

Building relationships with people is good for you!

In BBC News today:

"Good friends promise to be there for you, and their presence can actually help you live longer, researchers say. "

They did a study of how a range of social, health and lifestyle factors affected the survival rates of people over fifty. Researchers determined that while family connections seemed to have very little effect on life expectancy, friendships "have important positive effects on survival"

They postulate that this effect is due to the fact that we choose our friends, as opposed to family members.

So, hold on to your friends, they may be more important to you than you know.

I would also like to take this moment to thank all my friends for continuing to put up with me - you know who you are, and you are very much appreciated.
