Enough Love?

so why do i feel like i can never get enough love? it's why people go to such great lengths to be rock stars, movie stars, or just plain popular, whether in "real" life or here on ep. to be loved by many is a secret dream of countless human beings. it is something in the genes, the binary helix, the matrix of heart and mind, psyche and soul. i am no exception to this general rule of continually wanting to be loved and to be seen as special and important, even to people i barely know. it is a sort of sickness in my opinion, but also a necessity that creates a sort of symbiotic relationship between us and other. they want from us what we want from them and it is an eternal struggle between us in life to get as much as possible for ourselves from the other.

Yes, the truth. Such truth in this. Whether most admit to this, we are all seeking this soul satisfaction.

I can completely relate to this feeling, because I experience it constantly. I know it's not healthy, but damned if I don't bend over backwards and turn myself inside out in the desire to be loved, appreciated, I'll even settle for just having you like me. If I could accept that being loved, if only by a couple of people is enough, I would be a whole lot better off. I'll let you know how that goes... :P
