Being kind can mean checking in on neighbours and especially the growing numbers of people who live alone, often very successfully. In fact, this population group has skyrocketed. For the first time in human history, greater numbers of people are living life on their own. In fact, recent statistics show that around 34% of the UK population live alone. This can be for many reasons incl getting married later; kids moving away; separation / divorce; or just staying single. Often such groups can have their own peer or wider family networks, but checking-in from time-to-time can be kind both ways and make life better. Equally, if the person declines any contact, that too needs to be respected.
