Women Are So Hungry For Connection Right Now, And I Need To Know Why

I started talking about feeling lonely now that my kid has moved out of the house, and I still can’t believe how many women came to me with the same problem.

Something is happening right now that women feel more disconnected from the world and each other than ever. We’ve spent all our free time leaning in, or raising kids in a Pinteresting way, or just doing whatever the heck society decided we had to be doing— instead of fostering our connections with each other.

How did this happen? When did we stop putting those relationships first?

My grandmother used to sit around the table and visit with friends, my mom not as much… it’s as if, the busier we got, the less time we focused on connection.

So what now? Now how do we take the little snippets of internet wassup’s that we send to each other via story and the occasional hug emoji and pull them offline?

This is my next goal. The last time I tried to make it happens I ended up spending the night in jail, so I might need to try a different approach, but I haven’t given up.

There’s a way to pull our online world back offline and still keep the happiness and safety we have all grown to know and love and appreciate with the keyboards and phones in front of us, I just don’t know what it’s going to look like yet.

I do know that I can’t do it alone. And not only that, I don’t want to.

So, you with me?

What’s next?
