I am still puzzled,
“How can Emptiness be so heavy?”
“When my Life is so full, why does it feel so Empty?”
Emptiness could be so scary that I get a feeling like “I am loving life in this moment, but in the next, I am feeling empty inside.” And, the scary Emptiness becomes fatal when it results into “Depression”. Emptiness is that poison which kills every now and then.
We consider Depression is a weakness, which is a Myth, because Depression is a serious illness with biological, psychological, and social aspects to its cause, symptoms, and treatment that involves the body, mood, and thoughts and affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things. A depressive disorder is not the same as a passing blue mood and is more than a case of persistent sadness. A person cannot will it away. Untreated or undertreated, it can worsen or return.
Depression is the Primary Product of EMPTINESS, which doesn’t come alone but, bring numerous By-Products with it such as it can increase the risks for developing Coronary Artery Disease and Asthma, contracting the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and many other medical illnesses. Other complications of depression include its tendency to increase the morbidity (illness/negative health effects) and mortality (death) from these and many other medical conditions.
Usually inner emptiness is being tried to fill up with superficial options like:
- Substances such as food, sugar, alcohol, drugs or cigarettes
- Processes and activities, such as TV, Internet, sex, computer games, work, shopping, spending, gambling, telephone or email
- Attempting to get others’ attention or approval with niceness, caretaking, over-talking, story-telling, anger or blame.
There are many substances, processes, behaviors and activities that people use addictively to try to fill the emptiness. These may work for the moment, but not for long. Soon, the emptiness is back and you are looking for someone or something to temporarily fill up the black hole.
To be really honest, the impact of Emptiness is actually too heavy, and to truly fill the inner emptiness, there is only one thing “LOVE”!!!
