  Did you know that people without friends are more likely to die an early death? It’s true. Just ask science.

  你知道吗?没朋友的人更可能早死。是真的。看看科学依据吧。

  To up your chances of living a long, happy life, having a bunch of fair-weather buddies won’t do the trick. You need a diverse, well-rounded entourage that will stick with you through thick and thin. The following eight types of friends are just what you need to keep the doctor away.

  要想过着幸福长寿的生活,有一群酒肉朋友是实现不了的。你需要多元化、全面的朋友团队来和你同甘共苦。下面这八种类型的朋友能让你远离医生。

  1. A Loyal Best Friend

  一个忠诚的、最好的朋友

  Sometimes a loyal best friend is the only thing you need to stay sane. Everyone needs a non-judgmental friend who will support them no matter what. This is the kind of friend who knows all of your deepest and darkest secrets, but still loves you all the same.

  有时一个忠诚的、最好的朋友是你保持理智所唯一需要的。每个人都需要有一位这样的朋友。无论发生什么事情,他/她都会支持而不是批判你 。这种朋友 知道你所有隐藏最深的、最黑暗的秘密,但是他们仍然爱你。

  2. A Fearless Adventurer

  一个无畏的冒险家

  We live in a big world where there are so many places to see, people to meet, and experiences to be had, yet so many of us are stuck in our own routines and forget to, well, live. We all need an adventurous friend who will pull us out of our shells and introduce us to new ideas, cultures, philosophies, and activities.

  世界那么大,有那么多可以去的地方、可以去认识的人、可以去经历的体验,然而很多人却困在自己的日常生活中,忘记了去享受生活。我们都需要具有冒险精神的朋友,他/她会让我们变得活跃,给我们带来新的想法、文化、人生观和活动。

  3. A Brutally Honest Confidant

  敢说真话的知己

  There’s certain situations in life where we need to hear the harsh truth. That’s what the brutally honestconfidantis for. If you’re in a rocky relationship and everyone’s telling you that it’s perfectly normal that you’re back with that special someone for the 8th time in the last 2 years, the brutally honest confidant is there to yank your rose-colored glasses off and tell you, “Enough. Stop with all that break-up-and-get-back-together drama. You deserve better.”

  在生活中,我们有时需要听到残酷的现实。这就是为什么要有个敢说真话的知己。如果你在一段不稳定的关系中,每个人都告诉你,在过去的两年里你和那个人第八次和好这很正常,而敢说真话的知己则会否定你那过于乐观的观点,告诉你,“够了。别再上演分手和好的闹剧了。你值得和更好的人在一起。”

  Friends are supposed to be honest with each other. If you find someone who is brutally honest with you (in aconstructiveway), then hold on to this person! People like that are hard to come by these days.

  朋友间应该彼此诚实以待。如果你找到了敢说真话的知己(以积极的方式),那么要一直和这个人做朋友!这样的朋友现在是很难得的。

  4. A Wise Mentor

  睿智的导师

  Jesse Jackson once said, “Never look down on someone unless you’re helping them up.” If you have someone smart, inspiring, and admirable in your life who practices this philosophy, you’re extremely lucky. We all need a friend who inspires us to be better people without making us feelinadequate. Plus, being around such a person will challenge us to better ourselves every day.

  杰西-杰克逊曾经说过,“永远不要瞧不起别人,除非你在帮助他们。” 如果你的生活中有聪明灵巧、鼓舞人心、令人钦佩的人正在实践这一理念,那你就相当幸运了。我们都需要朋友鼓舞我们来让我们变得更好,而不是让我们感到不足。另外,和这样的人待在一起,每天都会让我们变得更加出色。

  The wise mentor in your life doesn’t have to be someone who shares the sameoccupationor hobbies with you. It’s simply someone who’s a few steps ahead of you in life and has enough wisdom and patience to guide you in the right direction. It can be anyone — a colleague, a friend who’s beyond their years, or an older neighbor — as long as you look up to this person and want to be more like them.

生活中的睿智导师并不一定要和你有着相同的职业或习惯。只要他/她在生活中比你领先了几步,并拥有足够的智慧和耐心引导你朝着正确的方向前进,就可以是你的导师。导师可以是任何人——同事、比自己大好多年的朋友、或是老邻居——只要你朝这个人看齐,并更想像他们一样。
