The entire United States population has recently experienced the isolation that was thrust upon us due to a pandemic. For most of us, it was difficult and stressful. For a select few, they no longer had to make excuses for wanting to stay in. Returning to face to face made everyone feel unusual, no matter who you are.
Whether or not being alone is where you naturally thrive, reentering society and returning to our social lives is a big adjustment.
As we come back together, we face decisions that we never used to meet anymore because the usual way of socializing has changed. These decisions might include: How do we acknowledge each other? Do we shake hands? How close and how many people am I comfortable being with?
For most of us, adjusting to the new reality is a quest. For some of us, this is an opportunity to learn, perhaps for the first time to be more comfortable interacting with other people and growing our social circle while also being more comfortable in our skin.
I am here to help you as we are all coming out of isolation.
