REPORT: Feeling lonely? You’re not alone
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CBSNEWS.COM:
According to a recent study, nearly half of Americans now say they sometimes or always feel alone, and one in five says they rarely or never feel close to anyone. So, to be lonely, do you have to be alone?
“No,” former Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. “Because it’s about the quality of your connections with people. It’s not just how many friends you have. It’s about, do those friends know you authentically?”
Dr. Murthy made headlines when. He even says loneliness can be fatal. “The increased mortality associated with loneliness is equal to the increased mortality we see with smoking 15 cigarettes a day,” said Dr. Murthy. “It’s in fact greater than the mortality associated with obesity.”
The article goes on to state the following:
It doesn’t matter who you are, or even how old you are. “The assumption that many people often have is that it’s older people who are lonely, but it turns out youth and young adults may have the highest rates of loneliness.”
Spencer asked, “You think younger people may be more likely to be lonely than older people?”
“That’s what some recent studies have in fact indicated.”
