A wise man once said, “The hardest thing about this world is living in it.”
I wholeheartedly disagree.
Living is easy; all you have to do is breathe in and out. It’s just that simple. What’s hard, impossible for some in fact, is to make a connection with the billions of souls walking this earth alongside us. Some poor souls cannot reach out and let others in regardless of how hard they try.
They are lonely among us.
They are lost in the wilderness we call civilization.
To those souls, I say this: the emptiness you’re feeling wasn’t designed for your suffering alone. Every single one of us, regardless of our social or financial standing, has been overwhelmed by internal doubts and fears at one time or another. Some of us feel shame for what we perceive as weakness. Even those who appear to have it all feel emotionally bankrupt at times.
But perhaps feeling empty isn’t a sign of weakness at all. There are billions of souls breathing the same air and pondering the same existential questions simultaneously.
“Who am I?”
“Why am I here?”
“Will anyone ever love me?”
“Do I matter at all?”
Perhaps the questions themselves are the answer.
Perhaps the void is the every thing that actually connects us.
So remember, as you rise from your slumber on this seemingly ordinary day…
You are you, and there can be only one.
You are here to seek answers and find love and fulfillment among billions of souls seeking the same treasure.
To love another, you must first love yourself. So do it.
And most important of all: YOU MATTER.
