TheConfidante In the Media
Easter can be a tough time. Easter is a holiday period that often provides days off but with less activities than what is organized and available at Christmas. Some of you may be required to work right through?
Colleagues and acquaintances may have gone travelling on exotic enviable holidays, or busy with their families? Single parents whose children are off with former spouses can feel emptiness as well. The loss of a partner may feel particularly acute. As the weather becomes cooler it may that bit harder to be motivated to go out.
In an increasing individualistic society, it can be relaxing and positive to have real “down time” in a world filled with constant contact through smart phones, e-mail and social media. It can also lead to feelings of loneliness.
Some find themselves in difficult family situations over the extended holiday time. There is an emphasis on family, friends and chocolate gifts on TV that may simply reinforce what we might be missing.
Loneliness is a real problem and we need to be aware of it
