“People need people— we’re all in this together: When we are hiding from ourselves, it’s so easy to become isolated. Over time, we start internalizingour emotions, engaging reclusive behavior, and before we know it, we’re completely alone. This canleave us feeling depressed. While it’s vital to know how to be alone and comfortable with yourself, wealso must remember that we need the love and companionship of others. When I stopped isolatingmyself and reconnected with friends and family, I felt a weight fall off my shoulders.”
