I recognized I had a void in my life when I turned 25. Even though I couldn't understand why it was there, it felt like a weight on my chest constricting my breath from fully escaping. The more I focused on it, the more I suspected something was missing from my life became.
But what was missing? I spent five years and countless dollars on that very question. I call that five-year span of life my "possible void-fillers" phase.
