Wants, Needs, Desires, and Dreams

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.

Unless we do something nothing happens, and if nothing changes then nothing changes.  I can sit here and think about what I want out of life, what I need to keep me safe and healthy, and I can dream about the women and adventures I might desire, but unless I take some positive steps I most likely will never get anything on my wish list.

For much of my life I would even come up with well thought out reasons and excuses why I couldn’t have or get what I wanted.  I didn’t have enough money, there just wasn’t the time, she doesn’t like me anyway, I’m too busy working…..

The truth was that I just didn’t have the courage or the realism to even try to get what I really wanted out of life.  Nor did I have the focus or psychological adaptability to change what I wanted, if what I first wanted was clearly impossible.  We can’t all be a  rock star, and the truth is I never wanted to be.  But there are some things that I wanted from a relationship, and I didn’t have the focus to make that work, nor did I have the guts to just walk away when it was clear that my relationships weren’t giving me what I wanted, needed, and desired.

However,  somewhere along the way things changed for me.  I wanted to be materially and financially prosperous enough that I could stop working for a living, and instead live a great life.  That has happened.  I wanted to stop being a miserable, judgemental jerk, and instead be a cool and charismatic guy.  That has happened too.

What I want, need, and desire, right now, is to improve my relationship with a female friend, and I’ll work on that.  If the relationship doesn’t improve in the ways I need, then I now have the emotional strength to just walk away.

Some say that we each have dreams and personal ambitions we want to fulfil.  And, that we will always face great opposition to seeing our dreams come true.  All I know is that if I don’t try to make my dreams come true, than nobody else will make them come true for me.

  1. It’s difficult to pull ourselves out of toxic habits, whether smoking or friendships that pull us down. Sometimes we need to be alone for a while to find that quiet peace to reflect and change. ❤️
