I post quite a bit about Mi Vida Loca on this blog because it was such a huge milestone in my life. MANY gifts have come as a result of my involvement in that project but bar none, one of the greatest treasures has been the friendships.
Friendships are so very important. There are actually studies that have been done that reveal how importnat friendships are, event to our physical health. One study found the women who had been socially isolated before their breast cancer diagnosis had a 66% increased risk of mortality from any cause and a two-fold increased risk of dying from their breast cancer compared to those with close friendships. People with ten or more friends were four times more likely to survive their cancer than those who tried to get through cancer alone.
So, being vulnerable to friendships may not always come easily but FRIENDS (REAL FRIENDS) are worth it.
