Here on a Saturday night after a trip to Louisville, KY, I stare at my screen and ask Dr Google a question that’s been burning inside me.
What does it mean to be needed? Results were scattered.
The dictionary provided that it meant a condition or situation in which something is required or wanted. That doesn’t satisfy what I’m looking for.
Next. I just typed in a simple sentence.
To be needed.
I saw a Chuck Palahunuik quote pop up…it interested me, I clicked on the article to get the entire quote and it goes like this,
“What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.”
It’s nearly the perfect description.
