Hey hey, welcome back.
This week we discuss the big topic of loneliness. There are many causes of loneliness, and many different ways to experience or feel loneliness.
We discuss some of these, exploring ideas to help improve loneliness caused by social isolation, moving to a new area, loss of a partner and how sometimes, the lack of meaningful or intimacy leaving our ‘many friendships’ feeling hollow.
Pennie, controversially, but also based on her couple of experiences of loneliness, believes that most loneliness is, in fact, a choice. Not that we choose to be lonely… but we can choose to not be lonely when it happens. She explains in the digital age and a willingness to take a deep breath and be socially brave, or intellectually curious, many types of loneliness can eventually be overcome.
Until next week,
Pennie, Jonny and Ruth
