"The emptiness I felt while living in Berlin was like nothing I had experienced before. Even though my days were filled with friends, späti beers, lake trips, and dinner parties - the loneliness was so overwhelming at times it felt like a void in my chest. I tried everything to get rid of it - I walked, I ran, I danced, I made myself busy. I made sure I was always surrounded by people thinking this feeling was from a lack of contact with others. I frantically tinder dated, searching for anything - love, friendship, any sort of connection to lift me from this vacancy. But nothing I did could shake the feeling.
So I left.
I moved 635 km away. I journaled and walked and walked and walked. I sat with myself and nobody else.
And finally the loneliness moved on."
