There are some questions we may ask ourselves at the end of each day.
Have I reached out to anyone in an emotionally vulnerable way?
Have I shared myself?
Have I made it possible for others but ignored my own needs for understanding and acceptance?
If I feel lonely, how have I created a life in which I am lacking intimate contact with others?
Building genuine connections with other humans does more than make us feel good psychologically. It is an essential requirement for physical health.
