I wish more people understood the difference between need and want. Especially when it comes to love. I don’t want to be needed. Air is needed, food is needed, shelter is needed…I am not. I want to be wanted, of course. But to be something that somebody needs in order to go about their day or life, well that is just sad to me. To me, it says that that person is dependant, that they don’t know how to exist, that they don’t know how to be their own person. To be wanted, well, that’s an entirely different story. To me, it says, look, I’ve got my shit together, I can get along just fine without you, but I don’t want to; I enjoy you and your company and you add light to my day, I want you around.
