Living rurally, and 160km from my nearest friends, not having the spoons to travel, plus being a semi-carer, PLUS COVID - I have zero in person social life, or leisure activities that take me off the property.
I know that being hyper-connected is a bit much for some people but, for me, it is de-isolating.
And the people I connect with can bring me so much joy. Obviously starting with you lot, and my networks on Twitter and Insta, but also the people I work with/for.
Of course, at the end of the day, you can never be lonely with 8 Labradors, but I have been talking human contact.
