When most countries and cities went into serious lockdown, there were some raising concern over how people who were living in relationships with domestic violence would fare. Being locked in with your abuser would be like living in a powderkeg ready to react to any spark. I'm no longer in that situation, and it's thanks to actual family, and friends. Not social media chats, not office-colleagues, not the superficial social that we often do. Real friends. Give your spouses time for the girltalk and brotime. Check on your single mates. Call your mom if you still have her.

So my advice is just on the importance of cultivating these friends. Your phones most recent call list should look like mine. It should have your best friends and family on it.
