40- Loneliness vs Isolation

Do you feel lonely because you’re isolated, or isolated because you’re lonely?

Virtually escaping isolation is relatively easy. It just requires us to be proactive. Find activities, hobbies, and opportunities to keep us engaged with other people.

Escaping physical isolation required an additional layer of effort and risk assessment but was equally solvable.

The more challenging piece to solve for is loneliness. Loneliness is internal. You can feel lonely in a room full of people. You can feel lonely in a relationship. You can feel lonely doing something you love.

Isolation is a convenient scapegoat, but it is unlikely to be the root cause of why you feel lonely.
