I found this really interesting...
This is the part that really caught my eye.
"Loneliness is Deadly. Friends, family, neighbors and colleagues increase our longevity. Researchers at Brigham Young University studied a sample of healthy adults over a 7.5-year period and reported that those with meaningful relationships had a 50 percent higher survival rate. They also found that isolation is about as dangerous as alcoholism or smoking fifteen cigarettes a day."
No wonder we take rejection so harshly.
