I recommend hanging out with your friends. They’re fun to hang out with. And they are good for helping depression and when you’re sad. I think that they help with your social skills and make you less awkward.
They are people you can laugh with and joke around with, but you do need to know when to and when not to. Sometimes you do get in fights, so you do need to be prepared for that. You just need to be a problem solver; when it does happen, just say sorry and don’t bring it up again.
You can make really good memories with them and just have fun. You can hang out with them and talk or get out and do something.
Either way it will always be fun and you will never want to leave their side. In my opinion they are the best type of support.
