There’s one thing that many of us have in common. It’s that constant craving thing.
No matter where you are or with whom
No matter how great things are in life, you can’t get rid of the feeling that there is always something missing. Not all the time, but many times.
This feeling can push us into addictions
I’m still searching for the way to get rid of this feeling, but I’m also prepared for the fact that we’re simply stuck together and that it will always be a part of me. Now that I understand much more about where it comes from and so on.
My psych team told me that it has a lot to do with our early childhood. But there are also many other reasons (I put some useful links under further reading about that).
I was a bit disappointed when I got all of the answers from the psych team at first. I expected a simple solution like “do this and you’ll be fine”, but instead of it, they gave me plenty of explanations and really useful insights into the way human beings function. I learned a lot about self-awareness too, and many things about coping with your damaged self.
Another lesson learned
It’s important to know when to let go and how to let the feelings just be. As they are. Without always acting on them.
This is just a part of my insight. The whole craving thing is way more complicated.
What do you think, do you have any experience about how to actually get rid of that feeling about always missing something and craving for more?
