5 Questions to Ask Yourself if You’re Lonely

Loneliness is rampant in our culture, and the COVID-19 pandemic only made it worse. I've personally experienced loneliness at different times in my life, and it's really rough. However, thankfully, we aren't helpless regarding loneliness. If you're experiencing loneliness, ask yourself the following questions to see what you can do to lessen it.

Dear Zoom

I hadn't done much video chatting before 2020, but all of a sudden, video chatting became the new normal. Google Meet and Zoom became typical places for gathering.

You were sure that this was going to be your year for finding true love. You were determined that you wouldn’t spend this Christmas alone.
