In life I think that relationships with other people are always important. Your relationships with your family go a long way toward fulfilling these needs for a human being. However, I don't think that familial relationships would be enough for an individual to be completely happy. I think that for a person to be completely happy they need to have relationships with friends that aren't at all a part of their family system.

I can say YES. Actually you can be happy without friend, but in no longer time. Human is social creature who need each other. I think your family is also your friend. We need friend to share everything include happiness and sadness. You will feel happy if there are somebody else know about what you feel, help to find the solution of you problem and you can find it in friendship

there are people who dont mind having no friends. But for me, i think friends are really important. You get to share every life's lesson with them and you also get to learn so many things from them. At times, we just need someone to talk to. and friends are just the right persons to open up anything you wanted to share. I know we can also share issues and matters with family members, but there are just things we are not comfortable sharing with them. I have so many friends but i am happy and lucky to have a wonderful bestfriend.

Obviously my friend, friends play an important role in our lives. Sometimes, when we can't share our feeling with our parents or even siblings, the only people we can share are friends. Friends also keep us happy and to end this response, i would conclude that friends are siblings from a another mother!:)

I believe that friendshp is always important. We can never live in a world withiut enough friends. We needd the social contact to sustain us.
