Debotton’s philosophy research makes the crucial distinction between desire and need.
A desire is whatever you feel you want at the moment, but a need is for something that serves your long term wellbeing.
For example, our desire might be to consume our entire body weight in buffalo wings, but our need is to feel nourished. Our need is to create a foundation that sustains and supports and strengthens us in the face of life’s challenges.
See the difference?
Turns out, by framing our feelings this very holistic and human way, it actually becomes easier to make space for nourishing moments in each day and life a satisfying, fulfilled life.
Therefore, if we are prepared to peel back the layers of compulsion and distraction and expose the core, there is a seedling of joy that awaits us.
All we have to do is be honest with ourselves about what desire versus what we need.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Are willing to going deeper to meet your truest needs?
