It really does get lonely sometimes, doesn’t it?
To have your usual routine uprooted by a worldwide epidemic, and your movement limited to within the confines of your home, unless otherwise essential.
With social interaction grinding to a screeching halt or taking place behind a computer screen, the isolation can take a grueling toll on our mental health, or the ones that we care about.
If you’re feeling like there’s no one around to talk to or no one that cares, there are people who you truly care about that might be feeling the same way too.

We may never know how our friends are dealing with this whole lockdown pickle, and even if we asked, they’ll never tell. Isolation can do a real number on some people, leaving them more shut off from the world over time.
Sometimes we just have to reach out and extend a little bit of love to the ones who need it, in the form of a text message or a video call, just so they don’t feel like they’re alone in this.
If you find yourself still being shut out and not getting through to the ones you love, there’s nothing a surprise (or five) won’t fix.
