Our Hollow Distractions


Is there something (or things) you are using to distract yourself from what you don’t necessarily want to see? That may be about yourself, your life, or society around you.

Television, recreational shopping for stuff we don’t really need, video games, are just a few examples of what seem like harmless pleasures, until we apply them habitually as band-aids to soothe underlying unhappiness.

How do we know when an activity has crossed that line? I suppose when we feel a recurring emptiness every time we do it, perhaps even accompanied with the thought, “Life should be about a lot more than this…”

A recognition of the hollowness is a good thing. Always in life when our discomfort becomes intolerable, this provides the clarity and willpower to take action and change.
