Can you imagine being old and all alone, no one to care about you, care whether you lived or died?
There's people like that in this world. Some, a few want it that way. Some are that way by circumstance. Some just never made the effort to stay connected to those who cared.
We all have to work at any relationship (parenthood, marriage, friendship). If we let people slip away from us, if we don't make the effort, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.
It's extremely important that we see somebody every day. If you do nothing but say hello to a neighbor over the fence, smile at a passerby, chat with the mailman.
It's so easy if you are alone to become isolated. Why don't you make a pact with yourself to make that effort to see someone, call someone, be 'part of the world around you'. It can be a challenge but you can do it.
