It is an innate human need to feel wanted. That’s why loneliness hurts so much; it is proof that no one wants you. This does not need to be romantic. Friends, family, classmates, coaches. Life seems at its best when everyone wants you because it is proving that your hard work to develop yourself has paid off even a little. Today, I finally felt wanted. It filled me with a joy to last hours and days. But there can be no force without it’s equal and opposite reaction. In this case, the pressure to live up to the standards that this person set in their minds was souls crushing.
Happiness of the day:
- Spending an evening with my friends full of good food and good laughs
- Checking everything off my to-do list for the day by 4
