Lacking

This may be the greatest lesson from love: that we need the world, we need others, we need someone beside us in order to feel complete. This need is not a weakness, it is a fact of life.

What dominate emotion would you like in the background of your life? Think outside of the box, go beyond the easy ones, such as love, happiness, or joy.
