It’s somewhat of a paradox. The article clearly states how you are doing, and yet instructs us to ask…
Hi Lauren! How are you doing?
I find exercise really helps, but also realize that while you feel you are missing the few close intimate connections, you have replaced them with thousands of indirect connections. This is natural given the way technology connects us to so many more people and don’t have enough time/attention left to devote. Perhaps knowing you affect many people in this way through teaching can help you feel content while you re-prioritize and find something less lonely.
See you at EmberConf.
