emotional "needs" ?

How do I purge myself of my selfish emotional needs?
Are they really needs because if they are not met will i DIE? 
No. I will not die.
But maybe my emotional "needs" can be met, WITHOUT
my emotional needs being in control of my life. 
I want to be so much STRONGER than my emotions.
Emotions are good,
they keep us in touch, empathetic, 
they keep us HUMAN.
However, those are unselfish examples.
At this time in my life, 
as a single mother, business woman, 
who has overcome many struggles, head high, eyes open.
I find myself succumbing to selfish emotional needs. 
I have never felt the way that i do, 
though i must admit I have been guilty of 
letting my emotions make some of my choices instead of my logic,
now as a GROWN WOMAN I do realize the importance 
of consulting BOTH
Deep connection, strong emotion,.
Love, may make your knees weaken
and your senses heighten...
I would say my physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual senses
are indeed at one of their highest points.
I've never "FELT" how i currently
 quite honestly I'm trying to get my bearings 
and figure out where to plant my feet,
I KNOW they belong on the ground.
and I AM STRONGER than my emotions,
if ANYTHING.. my heart... should STRENGTHEN me
not weaken me.
 and It is just ONE MORE TOOL, in need of nurturing and growth
so that it may be used correctly 
and to its fullest potential

what are your thoughts... on overcoming your emotional needs
or making sure you keep them in check.
Does your heart run you?
or do you run your heart?


  1. Maybe the answer is in BALANCE...

    1. Indeed, as with everything, balance is key
