What about feeling lonely?
You can’t just ignore loneliness. It’s hard coded into your brain.
“Feeling lonely is as painful as being wildly hungry or thirsty. If human brains evolved at a time when social cohesion meant survival, while social isolation meant starvation, predation, and certain death. If our big brains evolved to interact,
loneliness would be an early warning system—a built-in alarm that sent a biological signal to members who had somehow become separated from the group. Like physical pain or hunger, loneliness effectively says, ‘Hey, you! If you don’t find your people (or they don’t find you), you’re a goner’.”
You have to connect deeply with other humans or your brain’s alarm system will go off.
“Loneliness drives up the cortisol and blood pressure levels that damage the internal organs.”
