I had never really thought of it this way – but yes! This! You can’t consume anything that will fill the void. The void is there to give you the space and the impetus to create from within.
I’m not going to lie, I’ve been depressed in the past. I’ve looked in the mirror without being able to understand the person looking back at me.
What do you want? What makes you happy? Why do you feel this void inside regardless of how things appear on the outside?
During these slumps I spent most of my time sleeping, eating out of boredom, devouring whole seasons of shows and consuming whatever I could to satisfy the feeling, or lack there of, inside me.
I felt unfulfilled and useless.
I still feel this way sometimes but I’ve learned how to push through it with one simple question that I ask myself every morning.
Do I want to be a consumer, or a producer?
Logically, if you feel an emptiness inside you, you are missing something that will make you feel complete again. I learned that this isn’t the case.
