    It's Like This...

    Practice desirability in everything you do. Make people want you to be around them, make them want to be around you. Need to be needed!

    It's Just A 'want'.

    I crave being needed. I want to help people; it makes me feel so good to be called on for help. Of course I have a family of my own now and there's not a lot of time with them I'm willing to trade, but I've always wanted to be needed. I feel my purpose in life is to help people...

    Useful to Useless

    Getting up, getting dressed, walking out after breafast, speeding down the crackled street, I search for a friend to meet. She calls me out, gives me a hug, and cries into my shoulder. I hold her close, cheer her up, make her laugh about her tear-filled make-up. Now, she's fine...

    Make It Alright

    I need somebody to need me. I want to be able to make them better and let them know that it's going to be okay. I want to be the one who can fix a bad day with a smile, or can mend a broken heart with a hug. I want to be the one who will make you laugh when you're feeling down...

    I took it for granted for so long.  I used to have a few people that needed me.  And one by one, either the bond was ripped off like a bandage or the relationships changed and the cold emotional distance just seeped in over time.  I had a realization a few days ago...but I...
