What NEED do relationships serve?

leave a comment »

What I need more than anything is to feel understood. All of my most important friendships are with people who “get” me in ways that others do not. Everybody needs to feel understood and I need it perhaps a little more than is typical. Historically I have judged people based on my sense of how well they empathize with others. There are a lot of incredible, inspiring, and principled people who have not been noteworthy to me because of this. I’m growing and maturing in that I can appreciate different sorts of people better. However, I think that in my intimate relationships this need may never go away.
