SOCIAL ISOLATION | In The News

article image placeholderUploaded by @hope
It was brought together by the Rotary Club there and friends of the Portland Library and the Southern Maine Agency on aging, because a lot of the people that feel isolated are people who are elderly and just don't get out much. So I'm linking the article here for you to read because it's encouraging. It makes me feel like, wow, there must be more things like this out there that we don't know about. So if you have a second, read the article

@hope How to combat social isolation 🙏🏾 #people #connection #people #activities

And I'm just like stuck in the house when it's like, if you really needed milk, you would somehow find your way to a supermarket. If you really needed to buy a pair of clothes or something or whatever, you would find your way to a Walmart or a shop online. And I don't want to say it in kind of like a flippant way, but I do think that human beings are pretty remarkable at rationalizing things in our favor and not in our favor

There's a wealth of ideas out there. It just takes people to get other people excited. Facebook is a great platform for that. If you have a good following and get people excited and just do it, and you've got me thinking, what can I do? I'll think of something and if I get it going, I'll come back and let you know what I did and how it turned out. So yeah, this is a great topic

And it's so important to help change things, really change. Not just talk but change, like actually change things both. You feel like that you have that potential. So I don't know. I hope this triggers more things that are possible, the things that we can do. And your ideas are both amazing and your thoughts are amazing and that's the goal is to look at things gently and then say what can we do to shift and change? Awesome. Thank you so, so much

That's just a part of the human experience. But like you mentioned, the critical part of all of this is the change. And change only happens with action. So I really do encourage everyone as they're thinking through kind of what are the next steps? To really name what needs to be named right? Be authentic and honest with themselves, as well as hopefully here on the platform, to help inspire others to really lay out their truth. But then what does that look like, right?
