The Importance of Having Personal Relationships

Whether you talk about your family or friends, you often take them for granted, thinking that they will always be there for you. While true friends and family are always there, whether in sickness or health, your personal relationships affect you more than you can ever imagine. There is a huge importance of your personal relationships in your life especially as a Man. And we are here to tell you all about it!

Your personal relationships play a huge role in your life. As a man, you may have a beautiful partner who you love a lot. Or perhaps, you might have an amazing group of friends with whom you just cannot miss hanging out with. Apart from that, you may have a lovely family with a set of some great siblings who love you a lot. Your personal relationships are what assist you in carrying on in life, especially on the days when you feel low or demotivated. Having personal relationships is extremely important for a man. It is known to be a beautiful gift in life which gives him a chance to love as well as to be loved. 

Thinking of personal relationships, we thought of elaborating the importance of having personal relationships in life. Let’s read more to know more. 

To Live Longer

Whether we talk about a romantic relationship, or a relationship with your friends or family, these relationships can actually increase longevity. *A study published in the National Library of Medicine has said that having social ties can increase your age. If you like to be alone, it is fine as well, however, forming a few connections would certainly be good for your mental as well as physical health. Even having one good friend or a family member can have a good effect on your total health. 

Less Stress

With certain relationships in your life, you will have to deal with less stress in life than other men who do not have much personal relationships. The support and encouragement that your relationships will provide you will act as a buffer against the effects of stress or the stress hormone, cortisol. With having personal relationships, you will be much happier in life. 

Better Healing

Whether you just had a surgery or are taking painkillers for a pain, with relationships in your life, you will be able to heal at a better speed than those without any relationships. Apart from that, you will also be able to feel much more confident after a surgery as well as will be able to handle the post surgery pain due to the emotional support. With relationships, you will be able to heal from any sickness or surgery at a better speed. 

Healthy Behaviours

If you smoke and binge drink, perhaps you do not have good relationships. You need to build personal relationships with people who eat healthy, don’t smoke or drink as well as exercise on a regular basis. The reason behind this is that you are likely to follow their footsteps and indulge in the same activities, having a healthy lifestyle.


As we have read above, personal relationships not just make you happy as well as stress free but also add years to your life. They help in a speedy recovery and keep you healthy through your behaviours and activities. This makes us believe that personal relationships are quite important for a man and every man should have a few of them in his life.
