You start to feel panic when it becomes intolerable.
You don’t get over someone until you find someone or something better. As humans, we try to fill words with objects and ideas that outlive us. we don’t deal well with emptiness. Any empty space must be filled Immediately. we distract ourselves when we can’t find a deep sense of meaning. The pain of emptiness is too strong. It compels the victim to fill that place. To alleviate the pain, we distract and satiate ourselves to fill gaps. A single moment with that empty spot causes excruciating pain. That’s why we run from distraction to distraction — and from attachment to attachment.
What we forgot is that we can’t chase pleasure, instead of chasing we must build happiness and joy within us. The kind of sense which brings peace, contentment and love.
