With “social distancing” being a thing now, many of us are left cramped in our houses with our significant other, eating cans of Spaghetti-o’s, and snuggling with our dogs (at least that’s I’m doing) in an effort to flatten the curve of the COVID-19.
While social distancing can make us feel even more alone, it is vital to maintain relationships with others at this time and grow closer than ever.
