Thomas Leonard, said it best when he said:
“Something that you need is a requirement, but many of us treat our needs
as our wants and make them optional.”
This statement above, says something so groundbreaking, so fundamental to your ability to experience inner well-being that it could potentially go unnoticed. So, you may want to read it again. I’ll wait here.
Treating your needs as optional is something most all of us have done, or continue to do each day without even realizing it. This is a habit of self-sabotage where you may continually ignore needs that you have without even realizing that’s what you’re doing.
Without knowing that you even have needs, let alone even have the right to honor them, is what can be troubling and will, without a doubt, cause havoc in your life and you’re your overall well-being.
If you’re a woman who has loads of responsibilities on your plate – a family, work, relationships and a slew of other responsibilities and tasks that need to be taken care of, you most likely have needs that aren’t getting met in the way that would soothe your soul.
