Do you have a thousand Facebook friends and yet you feel alone?
In a world saturated by instant gratification, we have forgotten how to foster lasting human connections. Although technology allows us to keep in touch with people who live on the other side of the world, loneliness is at an all-time high. Why is that? Well, for one thing, smartphones do not give hugs.
Dr. H. David Burstein takes an in-depth look at loneliness, its modern causes, and how it may be alleviated. He has found that loneliness is inextricably woven into the fabric of our human condition. Our need for connection highlights the biological fact that we are, first and foremost, social creatures. Feelings of loneliness act as a light on an emotional fuel gauge, alerting us to our need for accessing personal or social energy.
This thorough investigation into our yearning for social connection offers many solutions that will empower us to show up more powerfully in order to fulfill this basic human need. And these solutions begin with an introspective excavation of ourselves, our emotions, and our search for purpose and meaning.
Compelling, insightful, and thought-provoking, this is a go-to guide for a more fulfilled life.
