everyone is lonely

crowd-of-people-300x187BAD NEWS:  There is a party going on without you.  Yes, you.

GOOD NEWS: You are not alone.  Billions of others people, like yourself, didn’t merit an invitation either.

The world is filled with lonely people that are secretly wondering if they will ever be invited.  It doesn’t matter how old, how skinny, or how fashionable they are – people are lonely.  We are wired to crave connection and friendship.  We need people to survive just as badly as we need food, air, and water.

Next time you find yourself wondering if you are the only one not invited – plan your own party.  Reach out to the person standing next to you.  Chances are they are wondering too.
