"Do you ever get that feeling? Like your world has become empty and alone, with no one to speak with? Friends disappearing, relationships faltering, no one to call your own." I just had a friend ask me a question similar to this today and it got me thinking. We live in a world of constant approval seeking. If we remove/lack friends, family, lovers, etc.... who validates that we are worthwhile? Who fills that empty void so that we can experience love? How do we beat that feeling of total abandonment?
