How often in life we look outside of ourselves to fill any emptiness we feel within was the subject of yesterday’s article and is the basis for today’s quotes.
“Instead of filling the void in your heart with outside substances, material possessions or the acceptance of others, learn to fill it with rituals of self love.” (Erin Chatters)
“Happiness is your inherent nature. In the hustle and bustle of life, you have forgotten a part of yourself, and looking for it outside. Fill this void with happiness that is sustainable, not transitory, that illuminates your life and that of others, that is life giving and so natural.” (Sanchita Pandey)
“If I was lonely, if I was afraid of being alone, then why abandon myself? Why run to someone else looking to give myself the thing that only I could give? I wanted to escape myself because I felt empty, and the emptiness frightened me. But obviously, I was empty because I was always running out, running away. The only way to fill the emptiness was to remain, to take up residence in myself.” (Norah Vincent)
“We see ourselves as broken, and then set out on a long and frustrating journey, to fill our emptiness. But it is not fixing that we require. It is awakening…” (Alan Cohen)
