I feel like I’m always looking for something to satisfy me, whether it’s in friendships, relationships, success, or those three themselves… but sometimes it seems as though they are never enough.
It can be a painful feeling, trying to find that intangible discomfort to make into something tangible so it can be solved. It’s like not being able to grasp a solid answer to questions, having to forget about something I can’t let go of, or dreaming about something that could never be. Ultimately, everyone is searching for something that would fill that void in their lives, that would make their identities be whole, or that would give them a sense of purpose in this world. While some people give up and think they will never find it, others become complacent with what they find. However we deal with it, I don’t think we will ever know what we’re looking for. We pretend we know what it is, but we actually don’t because if we are all finding ways to make us happy and we do what makes us happy, how come we’re still not happy? How come we’re not satisfied?
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
