15 October 2020: Physical Connection

Since the second issue of my newsletter launches today, I'm going to keep this brief. Today, I want to talk about how important human connection is. What a topic to be concise with, right?


Many people may already be aware of how crucial physical connection is for babies, but given the pandemic, it's become increasingly apparent how necessary it is for everyone else too. It's when we aren't allowed to touch people, hug them, stand in close proximity with them, that you realize how much you need and miss it.


It's really hard to stay distant from the people I love, harder still not to give them physical affection as I'm used to. We need it. I need it.


Obviously, safety takes priority, especially now, but if you're feeling lonely or touch-starved, as the case may be, it's okay to recognize those feelings. We need to address them and admit the truth of how we feel - being honest about our emotions is how we move forward.


So yeah, I want a hug. As soon as I can safely do so, everybody in close proximity will be getting hugs.


Emotional honesty is important. Mental health is important. Please take care of yourselves.
