Sharp - You need people
Say you have been in an emotional funk for a month or more...and have stopped connecting with people. You might be too embarrassed or too lethargic to restart the connections.
1) You need people.
2) People need you.
3) Note that there’d be no shame if you had the flu for a month and stayed away from people. You would show up again. Emotional flu is no less powerful and need not be embarrassing.
