Keep in touch

In the midst of this pandemic, if you are feeling cut off from your friends, reach out to them in a way you can: write them, call them, text them, video chat with them. It is important to remember that we can’t gather in person, but that doesn’t mean we can’t see them or hear their voice (with the right technology). It is important to be physically isolated right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be in touch other than physically.

Don’t wait for your friends to check up on you – check up on them. People get tired of being the only one to reach out, and may stop because of it. If you would like to video chat, but hesitate to bring it up because you haven’t done it much (or at all), speak up and let your friends know – sometimes these things are easier when someone else initiates them and all you have to do is be there and answer.

People may have a hard time asking for help; it may be easier to answer a question, ” I am going to the grocery store, do you need milk?”, than it is to just ask for help.

It may require a little more thought than it used to, but it is still possible to keep in touch!
