Samenvatting

In the past, people were lonely because there was no one around them. Prisoners, widows and orphans counted themselves among the ranks of the lonely because they were truly alone.Today, we are more connected than ever before. We love to go out and be with other people. Yet we are far lonelier than previous generations. There’s a postmodern ache in our bones which refuses to leave. It’s almost as if our notion of loneliness is a different animal altogether. Our loneliness is not rooted in a lack of people, but a lack of depth. We are good at distracting ourselves, and therefore lack peace whenever we are alone. And that right there, that’s the New Lonely. If you’ve ever felt similar pangs of isolation, you’re not alone. It’s kinda funny…we are The New Lonely.This book explores many of the factors which led to our generation becoming The New Lonely and offers some thoughts on how we can improve. It contains too many personal anecdotes to be a self-help book and too many sage maxims to be a memoir. Join Ethan as he walks us through what it means to be lonely…together.
