(An unmet Need causes us to feel empty, incomplete, or less than whole. Fulfilling a Need gives us freedom to be ourselves.)

How many songs have been written about this need? Lamentations on unrequited love. Missings. Pain. At core, they speak of a neediness for Love. Not whole – a hole.

Needing Love is different from having, wanting, enjoying, sharing Love. Those are healthy, fulfilling, and natural. When that kind of Love happens there is a flow, a sharing of energy, an uplifting power.

A need for Love is more of a one-way thing. There can be an ache, a desperateness, an ‘I’m not enough’ sensation.

Love Is. Whole and complete.

An absence of Love evokes feelings of need.

Coaching Point: Where does Love live inside you? Available for you to tap into on demand? Full and flowing?
