There may be times that you hit a lull in your life; when things do not feel as exciting as they used to. It may be a lack of job satisfaction, or maybe the spark has fizzled in your relationship. A sense of emptiness can strike at any point in one’s life, and it is important to seek support to overcome this.
Focusing on the lack of things in your life may have you feeling hollow, bored, and empty. You may be bombarded with social media and images that make your life seem insignificant and unfulfilling. However, if the intensity of emptiness is being magnified, with the help of a therapist, you can find tools that can increase your personal life satisfaction.
HOW TO KNOW IF YOU’RE EXPERIENCING EMPTINESS
Emptiness can be hard to differentiate from other heavy emotional experiences. Some questions to consider include:
- Is it hard to see the sunny side of most life events?
- Does it feel like you are never on the winning team?
- Are you struggling to find fulfillment?
- Do things seem unsatisfactory?
GETTING TO THE SOURCE OF EMPTINESS
perception of self can be influenced by outward experiences, and
emptiness can manifest from an instinctual desire to know the inner
self. As you try to make sense of the world around you, your inner
self can be thought of as a form of emptiness. This can be difficult
to encounter and often leads to a misplacing of the blame on outside
factors as to why a feeling of emptiness exists. Sometimes it’s the
lack of a relationship or lack of something in a relationship. Other
times it may be the loss of job satisfaction or a lack of overall
enjoyment in things. The main theme is a lack of something, and it
may be shocking to find out that the true sense of emptiness can be
in fact due to a lack of self-love.
Learning how to conquer emptiness requires patience and the use of specific tools that our therapists can provide you. It is important to not discredit the outward factors that may contribute to a sense of emptiness but to also honor your inner self while facing those obstacles. As your circumstances change, you may be faced with new obstacles that could leave you feeling empty unless you take the step to face this challenge head-on and discover new paths toward satisfaction.
Finding a path to fulfillment
is not surprising that in the youngest years of life, there is a
strong sense of self-love and simultaneously a lack of self-doubt or
feelings of emptiness. The therapists at Scottsville Counseling
Center will help you reconnect with that innocence, allowing you to
find comfort and acceptance within. This is the path toward filling
that void of emptiness.

EMPTINESS VS GRIEF COUNSELING
Loss and grief are big obstacles that may be addressed through specialized grief counseling. However, therapy for fulfillment may provide a new supplementary perspective in conjunction with grief therapy. Fulfillment support counseling aims to provide you with tools for self-acceptance and appreciation. This form of therapy can empower you in learning to reflect on the obstacles you have overcome, to honor your inner self while you seek personal goals and gain new ways to cope through difficult times.
