You know, I recently realized we all have a hole in our heart.Big Statement. But, we all feel a certain amount of emptiness and somethings or someone gives us scars that are difficult to leave. I always thought some external event, person or achievement of the next goal would fill the hole in my heart… Guess what, I trotted from one place to another, looked for new hobbies, tried to find solace from other people. But, at night while getting ready to sleep, that hole was still there and somehow it was starting to hurt again.
And then, one day while speaking to an acquaintance (who was opening about her life and challenges), it dawned on me we all have been hurt, shattered, disappointed in life. Well some more than the others. You know what’s astonishing we ALL look for the solution to come from an external source. At times a certain person or thing might lead us to the illusion that the hole has been filled. Hurray!! But, it is short lived. Because, it’s sneaky as hell and one fine day we realize we are back to square one.
So is there a solution… well to quote “If there is a problem, then there is always a solution. You just need to explore more”. And when we start working on healing that hole ourselves, it works though it’s takes a lot of time and persistence. Some days I just want temporary solutions, make me feel good for today, I’ll see tomorrow when it comes. Alas, this just deepens the hole and I am more scared of being alone. Therefore, we need to work on ourselves. Of Course we can have a support system or help, but we need to work on it ourselves.
“The hole will fill with love, peace and harmony ONLY if you look inside.Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside awakens”
