Having a strong, supportive, and positive network of friends and family members is one of the most important parts of becoming positive and successful ourselves. That’s why we should make sure we are surrounding ourselves with happy and healthy people so that we create a group that motivates and inspires others to grow and become better and happier people. These are some of the reasons why we should pay attention to this.
- Happiness is contagious. Whenever we spend time with people who like to share their happiness, we can’t help it but give in and share their joy, which is why we need to make sure we surround ourselves with people who are not afraid to spread the love around. Eventually, we will start sharing our happiness, too, and others will be inspired and motivated to join.
- Laughter creates strong bonds. Several studies have shown that laughing with those we love is a great way to bond with each other, creating meaningful and strong relationships. As a result, laughter should become a priority in our lives, as it will help us connect with others, building a supportive and caring network.
- We develop coping strategies. Happy people learn to develop healthy and effective coping strategies that help them deal with stressful circumstances and tough times. When we spend time with people like that and share our problems with them, they will help us develop coping strategies, too. This way, we can learn to manage our emotions better, eventually becoming happier people along the way.
- Complaining goes away. When we spend time with happy and positive people, there is little to no time to be spent complaining, and instead, that time is put into having fun, enjoying the little things in life, and creating memories that will improve our mood. When we surround ourselves with happy people, complaining goes away, and we learn to be grateful for what we have and for those who value our presence and friendship.

who make others happy.”
