  1. This question can be answered with a quote from the sensational novel by Jacqueline Susan “Valley of Puppet”. “You must ascend to Everest, reach the doll valley. It is difficult to crawl to the top to the top, which you saw only a few. It is unknown that there is upstairs. You are not. You are not. I hoped that it would turn out to be the doll valley. And now you got up and wait for a wave of joy. A little more, still … but the empty …. In this one, they did not hear the rumble of applause, and not to anyone. There is nowhere to crawl further. You are one, and the feeling of loneliness is very much. It is so little air that it is difficult to breathe. You achieved the unattainable, and the world calls you a hero. But there, below, when the ascent was just starting, they lived in you. They lived in you Hope and the dream of fulfilling desires. You saw the top of the mountain … And no one warned you about the Valley of the dolls. But, having reached the top, you realized that everything was different … The elements were tormented by your body, leaving you with deaf, blinded and so exhausted that it turned out to be It is impossible to enjoy For the victory. “Similarity for the sake of I would like to clarify that the situation” a person has reached great glory, a good family, children, friends, millions, a chic house, a car, but still in his soul he experiences a void “not the only option for someone who has achieved a lot . And the void in the soul all of us – not only super -successful – we can periodically experience for a variety of reasons …

  2. The feeling of emptiness shows that some psychological need remained unsatisfied. The example, money, car, family, glory cannot satisfy the need for self-realization or understanding of their meaning of life. This can be compared with physical needs. For example, no matter how much a person has different and delicious food, he will still want to sleep. And this need to be satisfied only through a sufficient amount of sleep. Therefore, such a successful person should delve into himself in order to realize his unsatisfied need and find ways to satisfy it.

Therefore, such a successful person should delve into himself in order to realize his unsatisfied need and find ways to satisfy it.

  4. This is if he does not know what else to strive for. It is important throughout life to set new goals, and it doesn’t matter whether you will achieve them or not, the main thing is that they are, moreover, not only for yourself, but also to help humanity: set one global goal like send people to another planet! A void will experience a person who is not interested in science, striving only for money and glory

  5. The whole set of demonstrative consumption … which proves that it is demonstrative. Because he does not set himself the task to be the way he wants. It turns out that he needed to have a void. For he has a question “Why?” Instead, the question “what and how I should do, so that” – and formulate what exactly he believes in his happiness (which he does not have) to this moment. Because happiness is in creativity. Creativity is a state when you solve the current problems. You know how to solve them, which is why it is happy. And not because you have something there.

  6. It is very important how he achieved all this, in what way he went, how much he committed actions (bad, good), did he know himself, through this and people, understood, reconciled, accepted himself, people, the world, this is importance, and not material benefits . the older, the more often the actions and deeds of life will catch up with, in the evenings, at night

  7. In general, this question can be specified from the perspective of the humanistic theory of Maslow, which suggests that when satisfying the low needs, the needs of a higher level become more and more relevant and the place of previous needs is always occupied by a new one. But there is satisfaction, it is extremely fleeting. It can be assumed that such are manifestations of perfectionism, and it, like procrastination, has neurotic and narcissistic sources. But this must be watched by a specific motivation of a person – either when he was a child, they were always unhappy with him and he has the need to get love endlessly through new achievements, or he ceases to love himself without constant new achievements and gets sick of it. But I would still I wanted to analyze this craving for achievement from an existential point of view and his attitude to death. Most likely, he will experience a strong fear of dying and all his achievements will be anchors with which he ties himself to this world, without believing to his limb to the end. Materiality is the only thing that in this case can be opposed to the unknown and fear.

  8. Human life should be permeated with meaning. He must live for some purpose. And if a person has reached a lot, by the standards of many – he has achieved everything only to dream of, but inside he feels emptiness, which means that the meaning of his life was not that. And when a person finds the meaning of his life – his soul will be filled with joy: life will become interesting and meaningful. Give people the warmth of their souls in all available ways.

  9. Everything is simple. Everything that you have listed is in the external material world. The concept of the soul refers to the intangible world of man. Thus, intangible cannot be filled with material. As vice versa. Here and the answer. And in order not to experience emptiness in the soul, you need to transfer your attention from the external material world to your inner world, intangible. It is also called spiritual. All sensations, feelings are just them. It is possible to fill the “void in the soul” only with your own attention. Similar to the like. Flower in the pot is poured with water, and fill the void in her soul.

  10. This is true, the emptiness will pursue a person until he meets the requirements for his goal when creating. And when creating in him, a close attitude was laid with his father, who created him. And the creator had the goal for people to be happy, recognize their father and live in harmony with him. And while a person does not achieve this, he will always feel emptiness.

  11. This question can be answered in different ways. One from the point of view of secular morality, the other in Orthodox culture. If only Orthodoxy, we are all at the “guest”, and no matter how you live, the feeling of dissatisfaction will always be present, not everyone understands this, and a person is rushing about .. It seems to be rushing about it .. It seems to be and that’s all There is, but something is missing, some kind of emptiness … from the side of secular ethics, saturation works. I want more and more. Fatigue, an eternal question, why do I need this, and what else needs to be done to fill the inner void. And again a man rushes …

  12. Because the “Sales of Dreams” did not come true. The main one. And dissatisfaction is replaced by suffering. And everything else is secondary (house, car, family). By the way, the family is most often the main reason. No love. To find love when you are loved with the same force and the same idea of ​​love as yours – the gift of God, is a rarity. You can live with your wife, and dry in … Read more

  13. The emptiness in the soul is the loss of something extremely valuable, which has become the main thing in life. This is the main thing for everyone, but this is not just a material interest or value. This is what has become part of you, part of your essence. Therefore, this void is not material, it includes everything that a person can feel and experience, not only his work, but also time as part of life. Therefore, without this … Read more

  14. Life is filled when there is something to strive for, especially if these aspirations are not only for material and prestigious abundance. The human soul wants to experience a feeling of delight or sudden love, or an unexpected discovery, or gaining some knowledge and skills. At the same time, it is not particularly important in a gorgeous house or a shack. It seems to me that external abundance is almost always … Read more

  15. Because he concentrated all his attention “outside”, lived in the “picture” painted by someone, and did not listen to what “picture” in his own soul ..
    Such people live and are guided by “generally accepted” stereotypes ..
    They do not have their own “picture” and “roadmap” for its implementation.
    He has already fulfilled the stereotypes, and then no one has nothing … Read more
