Child, what is it that you seek?



I realise I have been searching for something…I don’t know what exactly.
I have probably been searching for it my whole life. I just know it…
It’s a feeling I get, that something is missing. A gap, a hole…that needs filling.

You feel lonely in a room full of people, you feel misunderstood because everyone you meet just can’t seem to fill the hole, the space. It just seems to grow bigger each time.
There are times when you meet someone who makes an honest attempt to complete your existence. You acknowledge their effort and hope that the feeling of nothingness will go away…
But it remains…
Maybe, just maybe…you begin to realise that you are the only one who can make you feel whole.
The search will go on forever if you are not complete on your own before attempting to interact on a deeper level with another.
It’s a tough job to try a complete a human being, you would have to know completely what made the hole appear in their life. It is a mammoth task.

The search for meaning? The search for fulfillment? The search for purpose?
As long as I or you are searching, depending on whether we look in the right place…which is not in the world or within others…but within ourselves
Maybe, just maybe…we can both find what we are searching for.

Just don’t drive yourself crazy in the process #notetoself

  1. I think honesty should be the foundation of all meaningful and lasting relationships. Deception creates doubts and insecurity. And as for purpose, my friend, I have encountered many people who just jump on the bandwagon and cared nothing for the purpose of their lives. Anyway, next week is easter….


    1. living without purpose is scary but I agree there are those who can’t be bothered wit reflecting on the meaning of life, their actions or anything. thanks for the comment and yes next week is Easter. still no plan on my side besides putting the books down for a bit

  2. I am currently going through this phase…I am happy with most parts of my life but lately something is missing. There is a void I can’t explain and try as I may to keep myself complete the emptiness keeps coming back. I wish I could put my finger to it and fix it already.

    1. first step i guess, is acknowledging that the void is there then figure out where it might be coming from. sometimes we are just dissatisfied with something in our lives and once we distance ourselves it passes. hope you find it, it’s not the greatest feeling in the world. I have been there too many times. Thanks for your comment

      1. You might actually be right, I have to distance myself from something that I clearly know is not good for me in any way then I will get back to happy old me. The one thing I don’t like about the feeling is that it stops me from blogging because I can’t seem to put my thoughts on paper…Thanks for the advice hey, I will do just that.
