    Will You Answer Me...

    So, here I go. I made a mess of everything, never taking the right chances, never making the right decisions. My life almost completely faded away into nothing but abyss. Not even a memory of me will remain. How did I come to this? How come I never saw it before? I’d love...

    "All You Need Is Love" "Don't You Need Somebody To Love"

    We are relational beings.

    We all crave the intimacy, connection, feeling loved, accepted and to belong. There are so many lonely people out there, a nice gesture, a smile or kind words will go a long way to brighten someone's day.

    In Fact, I Think We All Need It

    My therapist is helping me out, she really is. And perhaps it's bad that she's making me blame some of my problems on other people, but regardless it makes me feel better. I know that's bad, but oh well :/ She tells me we all deserved to be love. That we all need love. She says...

    Love is a essential need in life.

    Everyone deserves to feel cared for and loved... Unless you are Adolf Hitler or a serial killer.

    I believe we all want to be loved by someone

    unconditionally. However unlike popular belief I don't believe it has to be a romantic type of love. I think friendship and familial love are just as effective in filling that inherent need for companship.
