We need friends to help with situations that we cant handle. I google why and i found 5 different websites, psychicelements.com, bbc.com, https://www.quora.com/Why-do-we-need-friends-1, https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201303/fifteen-reasons-we-need-friends, http://wonderopolis.org/; and they all said the same thing. Friends are there to help you and be there for you . Without them we would not be able to get through a lot of our problems. We need friends.
