The difference between needs and wants


The difference between needs and wants can be really important in our lives. If we do not learn to make the distinction between what we truly need to survive and what is an added extra this can lead to much unhappiness. For example we all have some basic surival needs including shelter and food however we make choices about where we want to/ are able to live and what kinds of food we want/ are able to eat.

We also need to remember that we have other kinds of needs like :

  • association or affiliation (people are social animals)
  • friendship
  • love
  • peace
  • liberty
  • honour
  • dignity
  • respect
  • knowledge in all its forms

Let’s take some time today to think about our needs and our wants.

About Malena 113

I am a light worker. I was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in the early seventies and first came to England in my late teens. From then on I visited a few times, came to do some sightseeing, studied and finally settled down to work. Reiki found me in the early 2000 as a continuation of my spiritual development. I achieved Masters in Reiki in 2010 and have trained other people since. I am currently studying Theta Healing, another modality of healing. I also work with angels and archangels and they are now part of my everyday life.
