When we are starved, physically, emotionally or intellectually, nourishment is the only requirement.
We think not of the source.
We think not of the quality of the nourishment.
We simply seek to survive, and attempt to feed ourselves thusly.
Loneliness is one of the worst forms of starvation.The lonelier we become, the worse our judgement. Our hearts, in their underfed state, will accept almost any companionship.
Our hearts, in their underfed state, may cause us to act in ways that don't make sense to our brains.
Because hunger, ultimately, is its own animal. It is a whimpering puppy or a ravenous beast. It craves, without reason. It acts without forethought.
Unfortunately, when we feed our hunger animals with nourishment that is substandard, the hunger returns again quickly, and multiplied.
When we feed our loneliness with emotional connections that are substandard, we are quickly, again, lonely.
We are hungrier, even, then before.
We must, therefore, feed our own hearts before seeking emotional satiation elsewhere.
We must satisfy our own hunger animals by connecting back with ourselves.
Or we will remain ever starved.
