Loneliness, as defined by mental health professionals, is a gap between the level of connectedness that you want and what you have. The recent study found that one in five Americans said they always or often felt lonely or socially isolated.
In small doses, loneliness is like hunger or thirst, a healthy signal that you are missing something and to seek out what you need. But prolonged over time, according to latest researches, loneliness can be damaging not just to mental health, but also to physical health and life expectancy. Loneliness has real consequences to our health and well-being.
Message “A Cure for the Epidemic of Loneliness” Rev. John Song
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
~ African Proverb
“No person is an island. Even a hermit lives in the context of one’s monastic community and requires visitors. That is why the cruelest punishment is to put a person in an “isolation confinement”. When infants and babies do not receive adequate human touch and interactions, they develop mental illnesses and literally die.
We are social creatures born to be relational. I AM because of WE.
My sense of self was forged out of people whom I have had relationships with. That is why the idea of “separate-self” is an illusion.” ~ John Song
“For where two or three have gathered together in My name,
I am there in their midst.”
~ Matthew 18:20
