As human beings, we all want something. We are constantly enticed by new wants, desires, luxurious gifts, exorbitant items, lavish acquisitions, and tantalizing temptations. For me, wanting and the acquiring of things (stuff) have often ended up as diversionary inclinations that have distracted me from satisfying my innate Self-Needs. My wants have often become deflective cravings that have side-tracked me from satisfying my inborn Belonging-Needs. My experiences in life have allowed me to discover and understand that unquenchable and unrestrained wants can greatly derail my attempts to mitigate the needs of myself with my need to belong, and at times have knocked me out of balance.
