Don’t people ‘WANT’ what they ‘NeeD’?

..if someone gets what he wants (not necessarily needs) then in his mind there comes an idea – I can get better than this or we see something more beautiful or more attractive and then we want that.. its simply because our wants and desires are limitless. 

Can you imagine what would life be, if God gave us everything we wanted and not necessarily needed?

One word! CHAOS!!

“..the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have”

The question to ask then is – Do we really need it?

It is an everyday story isn’t it? It sounds all too familiar… we always keep chasing things we want but not necessarily need..

Think about this:

Someone wants a Government Job, a dream house and a relationship with a certain someone 

in comparison to

Someone needs a job to keep him going, a house to rest and to feel wanted

We’ll always have wants, but its when we weigh our wants with what’s actually needed.. we are able to see how superficial we can be as individuals – just in order to satisfy ourselves with different things, so that we can match up to our neighbors & friends.

“We buy things we don’t need, with Money we don’t have, To impress people we don’t even like!”

How True!

  1. So true.. Many a times when we get something that might not the one we need it…. it will not make much of a value compared to which we get after lot of struggle…

  2. I agree. We need to accept that there will always be something better out there, but that doesn’t make what you have less valuable..
