The electronic devices made us alone and we even don't spend time with our family members. We will be busy with electronic gadgets. But we may be meeting them once in w while when we go out. But COVID 19 has restricted our movements. Then these mobiles helped us in keeping contact with our friends and relatives. I have contacted many of my old friends and talked to them during this COVID period.
We should be good with our friends and relatives and we should keep talking to them once in a while so that our relationships will continue and go in a positive mood.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Although to think that it is impossible to live without relatives and friends is an overstatement because there are many who lose everyone not just relatives but also friends but continue to live life joyfully. Such people not only know the real meaning of life but are more balanced.
But yes, in general having friends and relatives makes many things easy and enjoyable provided, you never ask them for money in need.
Live before you leave.
What personal experience you have mentioned here is quite intrinsic and natural, in such situations feelings and emotions which emanate from the core of the heart are invaluable. Obviously, It happens when you meet your old time friends or relatives whom you have not met for ages, you become emotional while meeting with them. I was watching an old episode of Oprah Winfry Show in which she invited parents, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters who had not met to each other for 20/25 years. It was really an emotionally touching scene because they were not aware of each other's invitation to the same programme and when they saw, having embraced each other they literally cried.

Similar thing I heard in the Madurai Private Hospital. When I was staying outside of CCU, as an attendant when my cousin brother got admitted there. Then a lady about 65 years old was also sitting by my side as her husband was inside the CCU with heart attack. Next day morning after telling her I went to refresh myself and after having a coffee I return to that place. I asked that lady to go for a cup of coffee or tea and I asked her husband name as if they call for anything I would intimate her. She told his name and went with tears. Later she came with tears and when I asked reason for her tears, she told that she and her husband were rich people in nearby city with four to five own houses. Their two sons were in foreign countries. Her husband since their marriage prevented to contact both side relations and they brought up their sons only on their own. She told that,'because of his adamant, now I am helpless as no one to help me here though we have enough money. This money does not give me consolation but he lied in the hospital bed without knowledge and any worry as he left everything to me.' It was very pity to see her position. Till her husband's shifting to normal room, I and my sister helped that old lady for coffee/tea/lunch etc.,
