We all feel lonely every now and then; this is a natural part of life. But for some people, loneliness becomes a constant fixture in their lives and they feel lonely every day. And if the loneliness takes hold and becomes a lasting feeling, it is also damaging. We forget or completely lose our social skills if we never use them. Simply engaging in a completely normal conversation can present itself as an impossible task, for example, and our bodies react by raising our blood pressure and we feel stressed. Moreover, loneliness is also a hidden and overlooked problem – we at The Mary Foundation want to change that.
