It is possible in the future that virtual touching will be a ‘thing.’
Until then, we do need to engage in the good old-fashioned connective task of touching each other.
This is easier said than done.
Some people don’t like to be touched and others don’t have a choice. They live in the sort of isolation that prevents touching.
However, we all need to be touched. We need touch to help communicate, to let people know they are liked, and to know we are liked in return. We need touch to give and receive positive energy which in turn heals our wounds.
So, what do you do if you have no loved one to touch you or to touch?
The good news is, touch does not work that way.
You can gain what you need from patting a loved pet, by receiving pets and nuzzles from a loved pet. You can also receive a touch from massage, handshakes, or dancing.
Touch is important.
