WHERE DOES THIS EMPTINESS COME FROM
You can't blame others for your lonely life .... or blame things. Lonely comes from something within rather than without. You can't say you were not given a chance or a break to make life better for yourself. Because no one else can give that to you.. but you. Broken marriages, wayward children, tough luck, difficult struggles, jerks -- these don't just happen. It comes from somewhere. How do you deal with it? And before you point the finger on something outside of yourself, you better try looking inward. That's where everything starts.
It's an empty life when all you ever did was care for your own desires, wants, dreams, goals. Oh don't get me wrong, those things are fine -- essentials to living. But vigorously staying in it and closing your life to the rest of what life is all about is not going to get you there satisfied content and happy. If all you ever did was you, you will wake up one day alone, lonely and empty. Ask yourself then where does this emptiness come from?
