familiarity breeds contempt?

“absence makes the heart grow fonder” vs “familiarity breeds contempt”

in the usa, we are not used to being around family members for hours upon hours. but that is what is happening with these various quarantines. the two above axioms are polar opposites in some ways.

i suppose that one’s personality plays a big part of how we react to others– including our family. some people do not mind at all being around others 24/7; for others, being by themselves is preferable.

with this coronavirus lockdown, which one of these describes your experience more?
