Basic needs are often filled even in the most desperate of times, yet we constantly seek something greater than what we already have. It’s acceptable to desire more, though the way to receive is to depart the place of wanting; what that means is that wanting and needing can make us feel stuck, thus no progress; worse, massive struggle. How does one not appear needy and still live with unfulfilled needs? How can we want something without looking selfish? It is when we become too focused on our needs and wants that we lose sight of taking care of commitments.
