10 Amusing Illustrations That Will Get You to Rethink Loneliness & Isolation

For too long, loneliness has been a hidden and shameful topic. It’s time that changes. Especially since 55% of global workers state they experience loneliness at least weekly. Loneliness is a universal human condition that affects us all and thus should be openly discussed.
