The Path Out of Loneliness

Mother Teresa once said, "The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved." Indeed, 54% of people surveyed feel like no one knows them well, while 36% said they don’t feel like they have anyone to turn to. On today’s edition of Family Talk, licensed counselor Dr. Mark Mayfield confides that at his lowest point years ago, he kept himself busy to avoid his growing anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts, which were driven by painful loneliness. In a world where we are increasingly isolated by the pandemic and the lack of connection caused by technology, Dr. Mayfield points to authentic fellowship with our Creator and purposeful engagement with friends and family as the true answer.
