Meaningful Human Connections Keep People Happy!

“More than any other human problem,
Loneliness, the absence of meaningful human connection,
Drains the joy and sense of purpose from our lives.

It explains why people go to shopping centers
Who have no intention of shopping ...
They just need to be somewhere where other people are,
Hoping that among the hundreds of strangers passing by,
They will find one familiar friendly face.

It explains why people come home from work or school
and immediately switch on the television.
They are not interested in the program; much of time,
They do not even know what is on.
But they are desperate for the sound
Of another human voice in their lives."
