    Idk why I feel empty sometimes.

    Even unwanted things don't happen or nothing happens at all,but I sometimes there's something in me like a "grudge" in my heart which makes me feel unhappy and empty. How can I prevent myself from feeling empty?

    I Don't Really Know Why, But...

    I certainly can do a little self analysis and speculate. I married my first lover. The reasons are varied and complex, but it is enough to say it wasn't for the reasons that create a long happy marriage. We had two sons. I reached a point where I realized I had been very unhappy...
