A few quotes from Shasta:
“Most of us are lonely because we don’t feel known by a few, and so it’s not for lack of interaction, it’s for lack of intimacy. Loneliness doesn’t just mean not having people. It means not having the right people in the right way.”
“What we’re looking for is really feeling like they notice us, they saw something in us, they acknowledge us, they recognize us, and that’s really what all of us are walking through this world looking for. And to have a few people that can do that on a consistent basis is so, so, so important.”
