In this life so many feel alone, feel like they are the one adrift among a sea of people, without an anchor or an understanding of someone to truly feel connected with. All of us have felt it at one time or another, and we crave the connection that comes with knowing others, with feeling understood, with being together. 

As I’ve met people in all walks of life I’m struck by this very human thread, that we want to belong and be known. I’ve felt loneliness, and I’ve also been incredibly blessed to feel love and connection. 

If you feel lonely, you’re not alone in that. Know that others feel it, probably more than you imagine, and try and take that moment to reach out and let someone know they’re being thought of.
