New research shows that loneliness is something that can be spread, much like a cold or a bad attitude. So, if you feel lonely and shared that with someone you know, ironically and paradoxically, that person is more likely to feel lonely than if you had kept your mouth shut. Even a friend of a friend of someone who feels lonely has a greater chance of feeling lonely themselves. So how do we stop this epidemic? Lonely people need to keep their loneliness to themselves. I hope I'm not alone on this.
