Care packages

Sometimes, spending time alone can make you feel isolated from friends and family. It can feel like no one is reaching out to you either because they forgot to, or they simply don’t want to. However, when experiencing these thoughts, it’s important to recognize that you’ve been given too much time to question things you already know are true. So instead of waiting for that text from someone else, try taking matters into your own hands and be the first to reach out in a way they won’t forget. Next time you’re feeling lonely, make someone you love a care package. Think about a friend and the things they’ve done to raise your spirits or help you out this semester and piece together a special package. It can include a letter, flowers, food, books—the sky is the limit. The key is to make it personal to who you’re giving it to and remind them that you’re thinking of them. After giving such a meaningful gift to someone, not only have you established a line of connection to keep loneliness at bay, but you’ve also done a kind thing for a friend which will not be soon forgotten. It’s about the little things, so use the holiday season to think about what you can do for others.
