As human beings, many of us are under intense pressure to satisfy our needless needs, thereby curtailing the happiness and peace of mind we are supposed to enjoy as we journey through life.

Most of us are driven and far stretched to unbearable limits in our desire to satisfy our needs. But do we really need all those needs? The mere fact that you see something as a need in life does not really mean you need it or at that particular time, you got to have it.

The assumption of needs is a complex discipline and many have tried to wrongly simplify it by saying, needs are those you cannot do without in life.

The above is not only wrong, it also fails to take into account the distinctiveness of us as individuals, our capabilities, strength and weakness in satisfying our needs-including the fundamentals.

If your happiness and peace of mind is being curtailed by your desire to satisfy your needs, you must re-evaluate these needs to ascertain if you really need them.

Life is a lousy journey burden by our own aspirations, it is therefore unnecessary to overload the struggles of life with needless needs. It kills the soul and never brings you the happiness you are suppose to have in life.

Does the mere fact that someone says you need something really indicates that you need it? And does the fact that everyone around you have something means you also need it?

For you to have happiness and peace of mind, you have to begin to question your needs. Prioritize your needs in order of importance. Those needs which are not necessary or put unbearable pressure on your existence can be forgone.

You must concentrate on the needs that will fetch you real and lasting happiness. Let go those needs you assume by virtue of assumption of needs…The fact is that most of the things you assume that you need, you do not really need them.

Set yourself free, embrace the happiness you deserve and have a lasting peace of mind by simply locating those needless needs, and throw them out of the window.

Stop assuming more and more needs as you journey through life because all they do is to hold back your happiness. Start getting rid of those needless needs you have and happiness will quickly simple with you.

    I know what’s being saying is very pertinent and very true, though thinking about it, I know we mostly chase what we think we ‘need’ because of the short term relief those things brings us and what it does to make us feel important and valued, though truth be told as you say chasing these things brings more stress and more drama and an empty bank account. It’s good to be reminded that we can stop going after these things and focus on what will bring better and more solid future. So no more shopping trips and holidays for me till I got my ish together! …
