So I am using the Awesome-CV template to create my resume and I am having trouble getting rid of the weird spacing that happens when there is not enough words to fill a line.

As you can below, the spacing in the red boxes below have different spacing based on the words in the sentence on that line. Pretty much I need spaces to be equal lengths.

Would love if anyone could help me out with this as it is driving me nuts.

This is the code for the macro.

    % Define an environment for cventry
    \newenvironment{cventries}{%
      \vspace{\acvSectionContentTopSkip}
    }{%
    }
    % Define an entry of cv information
    % Usage: \cventry{<position>}{<title>}{<location>}{<date>}{<description>}
    \newcommand*{\cventry}[5]{%
      \vspace{-2.0mm}
      \setlength\tabcolsep{0pt}
      \setlength{\extrarowheight}{0pt}
      \begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}} L{\textwidth - 4.5cm} R{4.5cm}}
        \ifempty{#2#3}
          {\entrypositionstyle{#1} & \entrydatestyle{#4} \\}
          {\entrytitlestyle{#2} & \entrylocationstyle{#3} \\
          \entrypositionstyle{#1} & \entrydatestyle{#4} \\}
        \multicolumn{2}{L{\textwidth}}{\descriptionstyle{#5}}
      \end{tabular*}%
    }

    % Define an environment for cvitems(for cventry)
    \newenvironment{ItemNormalSize}{%
      \vspace{-4.0mm}
      \begin{justify}
      \begin{itemize}[leftmargin=4ex, nosep, noitemsep]
        \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}
        \renewcommand{\labelitemi}{\bullet}
        \normalsize
    }{%
      \end{itemize}
      \end{justify}
      \vspace{-4.0mm}
    }

    For equal-length spaces, drop the use of your justify environment and instead issue \raggedright. – Werner Oct 29 '18 at 23:40

The online source you point to has no environment ItemNormalSize, so you must have defined this yourself. As such, you would have control over changing it.

You should remove the justify environment within your definition and rather use \raggedright:

% Define an environment for cvitems(for cventry)
\newenvironment{ItemNormalSize}{%
  \vspace{-4.0mm}
  \raggedright
  \begin{itemize}[leftmargin=4ex, nosep, noitemsep]
    \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}
    \renewcommand{\labelitemi}{\bullet}
    \normalsize
}{%
  \end{itemize}
  \vspace{-4.0mm}
}
