In this video, I am going to tell you about emptiness syndrome and how bach flower remedies can help in such situations. Birds build the nest and lay eggs and when the eggs hatch and the baby births are growing, the parents bring the foot and feed them and make them grow. And once they become strong, they fly away and all of them leave the nest and go away. But we as human beings are not able to do that.
We start our education, then we grow up and we get married and have children and we build a house of our own. Once the children become big, they start leaving the house and go abroad or go to other countries for jobs and the girls get married and go away. In such situations, some parents are not able to bear this separation. They suddenly start feeling empty in the house.

But once they go out, it becomes very difficult for some to make the transition.
Acceptance: Once you get adjusted, you can find new purposes in life. It's just like one chapter has ended and a new chapter begins. Some children do not like being instructed now and then, for they feel that they have grown up and they can handle their own life and take their own decisions.
