What is meant by the term "chronic feelings of emptiness"

i cant get my head round the term…what does it mean?

Probably refers to BPD. People with BPD often say they feel empty inside. It’s related to their identity problems. They often say they don’t know who they are when they’re not with other people.

Could also refer to depression although that’s rarely chronic.

As I understand it, and as I myself experience it, it is feeling you are devoid of “substance” (thoughts, ideas, and/or feelings) inside. For me, it is associated with apathy. Another term that may apply is “poverty of thought”, which can manifest outwardly as “poverty of speech”.
