I am so grateful to my family of origin. Social distance was thrust upon me 3 decades ago. The disgust I feel for human beings due to the lack of empathy from everyone I ever knew has become a blessing. It cheers me up to watch comfortable people suffer. The over the top way I value my children has made me anything but lonely. Who knew social isolation could be so good for you?
