Lockdowns have really been tough on everyone. One of the greatest challenges has been loneliness and isolation. We know how important socialization is and never in our lifetimes have we experienced such a breakdown of our daily connections to one another.
This has been the case since time immemorial. Even the Bible says ‘It is not good for man to live alone’ and Franklin D.
