Filling The Void
Updated: Jan 3, 2020
Why is there always this sense that there’s something missing?
Like life is somehow, for some reason, incomplete.
Like you are somehow, for some reason, incomplete.
It doesn’t seem to matter what you do, or how much you accumulate, it’s never enough – there’s always that sense that there's something missing.
The more you do, the bigger the void.
The more you have, the bigger the void.
You try and fill the void with whatever you can, but your efforts remain futile.
We often try and escape that sense of emptiness, by burying ourselves in our work.
By drinking or partying excessively,
By lashing out at our friends, our family or colleagues.
By staying busy or procrastinating, doing relatively unimportant things, just so we never have to face up to the reality.
The reality that you, just like me, and everyone else for that matter is most likely in some state of denial.
In denial about what life is really and ultimately about.
