I was already pretty lonely prior to the pandemic, so it hasn't had a huge effect quite frankly. It's given me an excuse to not worry too much about it and focus on other things. Can't say the loneliness doesn't sting but I've kinda accepted it as a "it is what it is" type thing

Many people has been greatly affected by this pandemic, but it's comforting to know, that there are some that's been coping very well during these times. :thumbup:

I really admire how you handle being lonely, I love your positive attitude.

I'm just happy not having to go out of the house much.

Yeah, for those of us who don't want to go out into society, this year hasn't been too bad.

Fair to middling. Dealing with some things in another online community but otherwise pretty fair. How about yourself?

Frankly, I'm beginning to think that a shorter list would be what doesn't increase anxiety among adolescents. On the whole, I think this kinda underlines why kids need to be in a Christian, traditional, environment.

This is true actually. I've seen on some websites that most people that adolescents are mostly having this mental illness which is really alarming to others. But you can reduce it in some ways like exercising, proper diet, reading books or other activities that can boost your own physical and mental health.

Yes, that's what I did. I also made one on one time for each kid especially my teen.
