Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful and making or strengthening human connections. Most people only think of family at Thanksgiving, but friends are just as important. With everything we have been through this year, take some time this Thanksgiving to appreciate your friends.

Friendships bring joy to life. There is something amazing about forming a profound bond with someone who has no blood relation to you. Family is an obligation, but friendship is a choice. Finding those people you enjoy spending time with is one of the best things there is, and you should never lose sight of that.

In light of that, I strongly encourage you to have a Friendsgiving! There are plenty of ways to have a safe socially-distanced meal with others to satisfy that need to be with friends. Set aside some time to watch a movie together or play games. You can even write letters to each other!

In these difficult times, don’t forget to make sure everyone knows that they are loved. Take this Thanksgiving as a chance to remind yourself of the important people in your life, the people who make you happy or who have helped you when you struggled. Give thanks to those who deserve it.
