If there’s one thing that has universally taken a hit in 2020, it’s our friendships.
Strip away the ability to connect in real life – the spontaneous meet-ups, the coffee and dinner dates, the birthday celebrations, weekends away and playground chit chat – mix in the considerable psychological and behavioural change we had no choice but to adopt back in March, and add the sheer uncertainty and stress it triggered, it’s really no wonder our friendships have shifted.
But while that colossal change in landscape triggered many people to reach out to their nearest and dearest, for some the effect was one of withdrawal – cocooning into the #stayhome bubble – because, as human beings, we all cope with fear and uncertainty in different ways.
