Fay, A. (2020, April 29). Loneliness is a modern invention. Understanding that history can help us get through this pandemic. Time. https://time.com/5828736/loneliness-coronavirus-history/
This article is in alignment with Moustakas's claims within his publication Loneliness and love (1961) when he differentiates loneliness anxiety (modern-made) with existential loneliness (inevitable). Fay claims that when tackling loneliness during covid-19, it is dependent on our perspective, as it is not always negative. I am learning through this independent study that aside from the negative emotions, there is also so much positivity and potential that cam emerge in being alone when we allow ourselves to experience solitude. We can unlearn negative biases and learn to appreciate, create and grow as individuals.
