During a recent discussion with some friends, I realized something. People—no matter what we have in common—all have different needs. Some of those needs are similar, food, water, shelter, love. But everything else is absolutely unique for each individual. We need different things out of relationships, different things out of our jobs or careers, different things from our children or spouses or other people in our lives.
In the same vein of thought, each person in our life needs something different from us. Even down to our children. The needs of one child might be completely different from another, whether you have four, or seven, or twelve. Because we are all individuals. So very different.
Each one of us has a purpose. A reason why we’re here on earth. An ultimate goal that extends far beyond what we could ever see, even if we lived to be 150 years old.
Unfortunately, we don’t usually know what that purpose is. Nor do we know the purpose for other people in our lives. We’re all just there for each other.
I don’t even think we always know what we want out of life, let alone our life purpose. But that’s okay, isn’t it? Because that’s what life’s about. Right?
Well. That’s what I think. It’s about figuring out where we want to be, then making goals and reaching for them. It’s about bettering not only ourselves, but those around us too. It’s about learning how to love and be loved, and how to appreciate and make use of all the billions of trillions of different types of love we experience in life.
It’s about using all those types of love to fill needs. To be of service to others and to make the world a better place.
You know what I mean? Yeah. I think you do. Okay. Off my profound soapbox of brain vomit now. Carry on.
