No one can live without friendship. It is a spiritual and psychological support as well as a sharing of life.

The saying goes: “Tell me who your friend is, and I will tell you who you are.”

In this modern era of multiple relationships, specialists say that one honest friend who resembles you is more important than 100 unreal friends.

The most important question is how to succeed in achieving these friendships. And what is the best way to deal with a fake and toxic friend?

Sociology experts confirm that a friend must share the same background and study.

They should also share the same hobbies such as sports, arts, or love for travel.

It is also confirmed by many that not all childhood and study friends are best friends in adulthood as the more they mature and change as well as leaps occur in their lives as gaps occur between childhood friends when they do not share the same experience.

Moreover, recent research shows that technology reduces true friendships.

The study involved a group of young people who grew up in the era of modern technology and social media.

It was discovered that while they have many friendship circles on the internet community, they do not have the courage to create true friendship or talk and express themselves in real life.

The researchers believe the participants were accustomed to speaking from behind the screens and did not know how to express themselves in face-to-face contact.

Social scientists believe that these youth need therapy to be able to make true, successful friendships.

There is no doubt that people can be exposed to negative experiences or make a friendship that turns out to have a sour end, and the question is: How do we overcome the trauma of cutting ties with friends of many years?

Psychologists say that people usually need six months to overcome a negative experience, but it may extend to years to emerge unscathed from the experience.

They recommend that the way to get over that experience is, to be honest and realistic when they meet new people to acquire a true friend for life.
