"He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need, because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a God." ~ Aristotle.

We cannot exist in isolation. We need relationships, companionship, interaction and connection.

It can be very hard to feel connected.

We all need time out; alone for reflection, consideration and to recharge.

We need to be connected too.

Sometimes we feel isolated and alone in a group. Like no one understands what it is really going on inside you.

It can be hard to reach out.

We all need each other.

Reach out to a friend, a stranger; it does not matter. You may not feel like you need to; but perhaps they need you.

Say hello to someone on the street, offer to help a friend, call a relative, pay for someone's coffee. Email or text someone you have not seen in awhile, ask how they are. Make a call. Switch off your device while you have dinner with your family.

Reconnect.

It doesn't matter how. You are not alone.  We are part of something bigger.
