The socially well person possesses and nurtures a network of support through positive relationships with friends, family, coworkers and intimate partners. They are able to relate to and connect with other people in their world, displaying a level of sensitivity and awareness towards the feelings of others. Socially well relationships are built on interdependence, rather than co-dependency, and are based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect.
