Erase Your Voids
I'm going to get right into today's message, and be as transparent as I can possibly be.
In life, we all go through hard times. We might feel as though there are voids in our hearts, and we might even go so far as to assume that the difficult seasons of our lives will never pass. Things often feel completely out of control, but I'm here to tell you why that notion is completely false. Trust me—I get it—in my own past, I allowed my weaknesses and doubts to be in the driver's seat of my life. I allowed my voice of fear to be my leader.
At the end of the day, the only way to progress is to silence that voice.
No one wants to feel lonely, and no one wants to feel insignificant. Many of us are going through times of financial burden, and our mindsets are tunes to focus on that burden alone. We ignore the positives, and let negativity overwhelm us. We put ourselves in toxic situations, and we surround ourselves with people who aren't healthy for us. When it comes to relationships, I understand how much loss can hurt. However, filling the void of loneliness isn't worth compromising your values. Sometimes, it's better to be patient when it comes to people and situations in our lives. Forcing a void to fill often results in bad relationships and horrible situations.
Stop allowing your voice to force you into settling. It's time for you to work on yourself. It's time for you to understand yourself. If you can't be happy alone, then I can promise you one thing—you don't need to be in a relationship. While some people might not agree with that statement, I personally believe that a healthy and powerful relationship is only possible when two people add to each other. Great relationships aren't about filling voids, or completing each other—they're about becoming something more than complete. Whoever out there is reading this right now, I want you to do better for yourself. I want you to use your power of discernment to figure out a healthy way to fix the problems in your life. I want you to be honest with yourself, because if you can't do that, you'll never become your best self.
Stop letting the void of insignificance talk you into disrespecting yourself. Stop letting the void of loneliness drive you into wearing a mask, and stop feeding into the lies of social media. Let me tell you something—if you can stop allowing your voids to control you, you can do anything.
It all starts with you.
