You're going to tell me this one's no big deal but let me tell you about being lonely. Humans are a social species. We rely on connections to survive. Even the most basic social interactions help keep us alive. Statistics prove the subjective feeling of loneliness can increase the likelihood of premature death by 26%
The kind of lonely I'm talking about is when you feel you've got nothing left. Nothing. And no one. Like you're drowning, and no one will throw you a line.
