The Importance of Relationships


As the saying goes, no man is an island. Definitely, one shouldn’t try to face all of life’s challenges. We can put our trust in the Lord, but He counseled His disciples to feed His sheep and that a man and a woman should be helpmeets for one another.

People who are married live longer and report having more meaningful lives. Support groups help increase the likelihood of surviving difficult circumstances and making lifestyle behavioral changes. Social media doesn’t provide support many people seek.

A recent study by faculty at BYU – Idaho found that the more time people spent on social media each day, the lonelier they reported feeling. Join groups that meet together and do things you enjoy.
