#MyMomAlwaysSays: "Watch out for the void..."
Ohhh man, guys. THIS is one I had to learn the hard way so many times in life, and most often it had to do with relationships.
The ‘void’ can be anything from an argument to a breakup to a lost friendship to a rift in family.
But when you’re in that place, be careful what you fill that gap with.
The most common examples you see is someone turning to excessive drinking or partying or hanging out with the wrong people or falling into bad patterns or habits.
When I encounter a particularly hard situation, my mom has taught me wait 24 hours to make a decision or to say something if it involves another person.
This has helped me through countless hard times where I may have said or done something or made a decision I would’ve otherwise regretted.
Watch out for that void, and if you find yourself in it, know that it’s only temporary.
