What is Filing Your Void
Your void wants to be felt not filled. Steph Feels
Uncomfortable feelings are well....uncomfortable! We don't like to feel them, we run from them.
We suddenly find so many things to fill the void in our lives. People fill it with shopping, sex, drink, food, social media, you name it. Rather than face the uncomfortable feeling, we run from it.
We run from feeling of discomfort, we run if we think it will bring us pain.
Feelings are guides, they point us in a direction. If we ignore the guides it is so easy to get lost.
We have to know and remember that our guidance comes from feelings and decisions are best made with a balance of both head and heart
Many times our heart's decisions are illogical, it gives us uncertainty. so we shy away from those decisions waiting on certainty and signs
What we don't understand is that our feelings are the signs and we may never get the validation and certainty that we crave.
The next time you feel a void, sit in it for a moment, let it wash over you, this too shall pass, don't run to the mall, to the TV, to the phone, to the man, to the woman, to the bottle. After the feeling passes then decide what is best for the celebration!
