What's "bring together" and "push apart" mean?
Answer from a Native speaker
To "bring together" means to cause people to join, meet, or grow closer. To "push apart" means to create distance between two things (or people). In this case, the speaker is asking the question of whether stress causes people to grow closer or farther apart! Ex: The pandemic has brought me and my family closer. Ex: My busy job pushed me and my boyfriend apart. We later ended breaking up.
