Today’s Takeaway: The holiday season can be a particularly trying time for those with a history of depression. Over the past year, the strain of being stuck at home in the midst of a pandemic has contributed significantly to depression and anxiety diagnoses. Substance abuse and suicide rates are also rising as people struggle to cope. The social isolation of being single can certainly take a toll. The pandemic makes seeing friends and family, dating, and expanding our social circles very limited. In these challenging times, a professional matchmaking service may be one of the best ways to find a genuine connection. Even if it’s not the love of your life, it may be a lifelong friend that you find. At the end of the day, isn’t it worth taking a chance on love? I’m Florine Mark and that’s “Today’s Takeaway.”
