Not every hunger is physical.
Not every hunger can be answered with a meal.
Sometimes it takes far more.
There is an emptiness that can't be filled by eating, or drinking, or physically consuming anything, but fill it we must or find ourselves starving to death.
Goddess knows I've felt this deep hunger. I've made mistakes in trying to ease it. I've compromised because I thought I had to, thought that the only way I'd find a place at the table would be to give up something of myself.
To hell with that.
I'll find satiety on my own terms.
