Personal space is often overlooked as an emptiness. We can easily mistake personal space for being lonely when we are not proactive with our time. We become bored and begin to look out into the world for experiences to satisfy our senses and needy gratifications. When we are kept busy with constructive ideas, followed by action, we do not notice the loneliness of the empty space around us because we are so preoccupied with matters at hand. When in this state of mind there is no 'empty space' because the mind focuses purely on what is in front of us. When we are longing for someone, no matter what we do or where we choose to go, there will always be a sense of 'loss.' The key to staying mentally fit through these times is to learn to appreciate that person from the inside out. Recognise their love within rather than see it as an external factor or phenomena. After all, every experience happens within rather than on the outside, even though it may seem that way. The feeling you get when you love someone is inside you is it not? Your inner world reflects your outer world and vice-versa.
When someone or something that you love deeply is a thousand miles away and you have what seems to be 'all the time in the world,' it would be wise to enhance the relationship by firstly beginning with healing the pain of their absence. Light affirmation is good for the soul. To tell ourselves that we carry our loved ones in the heart, rather than notice their absence with the head (the mind) is a great start. When we start to look at things differently we begin to have a different experience in the world, naturally. The one you truly love can never really leave you. Their presence will resonate through your entire existence forever, for if they do not stand the test of time in your heart, especially whilst you are apart, then it was you who never truly loved them after all.
