The bottomless pit

Emty spaces are hard to fill

Empty spaces are hard to fill

Some of us are cursed to live with this bottomless empty pit that we can never fill, no matter how much good comes our way. Nothing is ever enough. We go through life feeling starved, eager to find that something or someone who will complete us, that will fill that empty space. It’s like chasing wind, it escapes us no matter how hard we try to grasp it.

The trouble with this hunger to fill the emptiness inside is that we suffer constant disillusionment, and the emptiness only grows larger. When I was a little girl my dad used to take me to the amusement park and after having spent the whole day there, I always ended up crying because I wanted more! So taking me there was a double-edged sword of sorts. Now, years later I understand what all that was about. I’ve spent a large part of my life chasing the wind and hoping to attain that continuous state of fulfilment from the outside world. I finally reached the conclusion that I can’t. I have to learn to live with that emptiness, make friends with it and be gentle towards myself when the feeling comes lurking.

I know I am not alone. There is hope for us. We can stop chasing the wind and learn to be content and fulfilled on our own.
