Lockdown Blues

The pandemic has forced people to stay away from each other, cramped in their rooms, with no get-togethers or nights out. This is giving rise to loneliness, and also in the inability in making new friends.

Before the pandemic, people used to join Yoga classes, jogging clubs or do volunteer work to meet new people. Now they use Tinder for the same, but even meeting new people does not solve their core problem of loneliness.

Loneliness: What It Is

  • Loneliness does not mean being alone, although that’s a big part of the problem. 
  • It is defined as a lack of connection, or emotional closeness, and a feeling of unresponsiveness. 
  • People can feel lonely while having a huge network of friends, as many celebrities do. 
  • The problem is the depth and the authenticity of the connection.
  • Loneliness can be cured by intimacy, but being intimate with someone is a risky concept for most people.

We Need Friends

Human beings are social creatures that need other people with them. 

The warmth, the care, the gentle scrutiny, the old tales of yore, all are needed to make us feel buoyant and invincible, our worries dissolving in the laughter among people who care for us.

Being Lonely

Our perceptions get wrapped when we are lonely. The sense of social threat is magnified, as we tend to focus on awkward social encounters, playing them again and again in our heads. It keeps us in our shells and more withdrawn from the outside world.

We also have unrealistic expectations out of friendships and romantic love, unable to understand that things can be different from our fantasies and ideals.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
