Need is a much misused and abused word, that leads to unnecessary pressure too.
I caught myself saying, “I need a new pair of sunglasses” today. Oops! I actually believe our needs are very few, and at this time of year many of us are focused on helping the truly needy. Meaning, those who are having trouble taking care of basic survival needs.
So often we end up saying, “I need a new dress” or “I need that report by Monday.” That word need puts so much pressure on! When it would be more accurate to say, “I want a new dress” and “If I don’t receive the report by Monday, then this project is delayed etc” With real specifics and consequences. Not this abstract life or death energy that accompanies the word “need.”
