67 Feeling Empty Quotes to Cope Loneliness

A large number of people experience feelings of emptiness at some point in their life, frequently as a result of a perceived loss of meaning or purpose.

This existential crisis may emerge in a variety of ways, ranging from discontent to an overpowering sensation of lethargy.

It might be due to habitual boredom, unrealized dreams or a separation from personal ideals.

If left unresolved, it may cause emotions of loneliness, despair and in extreme instances, depression.
