It is easy to expect that feeling lonely can create depression and stress, but it also influences the blood pressure and immune system and can be the root of heart attacks and strokes. This situation is exponentially worse for those at older ages.
A study states that loneliness, or social isolation, is as hazardous to your overall wellbeing as being obese. “Not only are we at the highest recorded rate of living alone across the entire century, but we’re at the highest recorded rates ever on the planet,” says Brigham Young University psychology researcher and co-author of the study, Tim Smith. Their study showed that loneliness increased a person’s risk of death by 26 percent. More details on the study can be found here.
Love is quite a crucial component of our wellbeing and sometimes imposing your presence on people who want to stay away from the world or are socially different is necessary.
