As I was flipping through my journal, I came across an entry from two years ago. Reading it made me realize just how much things have changed for me.
I was also reminded of the many, many people who are struggling with loneliness and depression this time of year. The holiday season’s focus on family, couples, gift giving can exacerbate the lingering feelings of loneliness.
So, I want to take this time to encourage you reading this to reach out to those single unattached friends, family members, and neighbors. Invite them to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Maybe a holiday party or to church, if you attend.
