The Empty Spot
A fellow told me that he was married to a really good woman. She gave him love, respect and attention. He still felt empty. He drank to fill the hole. It did not work. I have come to realize that if you are feeling empty, another person cannot fill you up. Some people marry to get filled up by the other, to fill that hole in the soul, if you will. They call it love, but my experience is that the one with the hole in the soul is a "taker." Love has a giving side to it too. Love is a lot of giving, but if you feel empty then you don't sense you have anything to give. Surrender to God fills the hole in the soul, I have found. That is a pretty tall order, especially if you don't believe much in God whoever. When you are on the road to desperation, surrender becomes a lot more of an option. It beats suicide. I am missing Robin Williams.
