Loneliness Is More Deadly Than Obesity
Loneliness is a feeling that everyone can relate to. There is a rise in the overall feeling of isolation among adults that is not completely explainable. We are all provided outlets for face-to-face interaction and with social avenues via our cellphones or websites. So why with all the extra do we feel less like we can open up or even listen and keep things confidential like friends should.
If not having real friends is killing people off faster than a disease like obesity, which is also easily preventable, then wake up and smell the roses. Step away from your iPhone and try and be good to your fellow human being. Make lasting friendships. The more people you have on your team, the better you’ll be. [via]
