We all like to be needed, wanted or believed

Last Monday, I watched a French film on Netflix (eg, IMDb). After 1 hour and 9 minutes, someone says: "This woman needs me. Her children need me. And I want to be needed." Note: markings in quote by LO. I paused the movie and made a note. I wondered: is this what life is all about? There is a difference between being needed, wanted or believed in. I have a friend,...

I've mentioned doubt in various of my blogs (eg, Doubt-Fear-Hope-Love, self-doubt). Doubt seems so obvious that there appeared little to no need for explanation. I'm changing course.

Love has no doubt

For some time, I've been considering writing a blog about doubt (in time) because young and old people seem to have less doubt in their lives. Some can even be cocksure about their opinions, regardless of facts. I started off on the wrong foot. Doubt, and having no doubt, are related to beliefs. Opinions express beliefs. During my research, I came across a 2016...
