Loneliness is an epidemic among us. Made worse but this pandemic we are in. And it is not resolved by having 500 or even 5,000 followers on Insta. In fact, the solution is not even be surrounded by people. We can be in a crowd, a community, and still ache from loneliness.
You see we need not just contact but connection. To have others in our lives who care, who listen, who call up, reach out, share their troubles with us and encourage us to share ours with them.
To be fully human, humans need real connection with other humans. While it’s Apple that has almost single handedly created a generation of us that are more willing to interact with a mobile than a mate, together we can change that. It starts today by crafting a conversation with a mate.
