Loneliness is not a new phenomenon, but it is on the rise.

Recent estimates suggest that more than half of adults in the US feel lonelyand more people than ever are living alone. (Although you can still feel lonely even if you are in a society or living with others).

The pandemic has also drastically altered relationships of all kinds. In addition to COVID-related pain, anxiety, and depression, many people are dealing with the mental exhaustion that can result from prolonged social isolation.
