I think the lack of rich friendships was an issue pre-covid. The isolation/loneliness many of us experienced during the past 16 months only exasperated these struggles. I loved the book Atomic Habits by James Clear (Amazon link). James talks about the idea of getting better by 5% in any area. So I would encourage you all to gain connections with people in the next month 5% more.
My book Parenting: Navigating Everything talks more about the conversation on loneliness. Chapter 16 is dedicated to this topic. Click here for where you buy the book. In the book, there is a loneliness survey. I posted it online here. It might give you some understanding of why you are lonely so you can begin to work your way out of this.
