Loneliness and depression

Loneliness and Depression (Instagram post)

Depression makes you want to retreat and close off from the world
Whereas Loneliness makes you want to reconnect to people. They are like polar opposites that often come as a duo.

This can be counterproductive and make the much needed social interaction awkward and prevents you from making that connection

The majority of Sapien life, When we lived in caves, we moved because we had to but only when we had to.

We had to hunt our food, run for our lives. The same is true when you look at lions, They move only when they have to.
