About this submission
In a year of zoom calls, texting, social media, and face time, I have been connected to more people than ever before. Yet, at the end of the day I still long for in-person interactions and can't help but feel overwhelmingly lonely. By sharing my emotions I hope that others who relate can allow themselves to validate their emotions and know that they aren't the only ones feeling lonely. In the future when we are back to a normal function, I want to be able to reflect on this time of loneliness and truly appreciate face-to-face relationships.
