W(hole)ness

When we don’t feel whole, we look to fill the void. We fill the void with food, alcohol, drugs, smoking, sex, attention or external validation, shopping, gambling, repetitive behaviours (nail biting, tapping, picking), social media scrolling, TV bingeing, isolating or withdrawal, working, over functioning, under functioning, obsessing over body issues… the list goes on. It is anything that may make us feel better in the short term but doesn’t really make us feel better in the long term. We might not even realise this is what we are doing, one filler can be replaced with another and we can have many fillers at the same time. They can go on for months, years or even decades. The magic we are looking for is in the work we are avoiding. Everything we are looking for to help fill that space we already have inside of us.
