Life necessities, what does that mean to me? It means a lot. Without them I would probably go insane. I’m not talking about the usual things so many people “need.” I’m talking about the stuff that matters. It’s funny because as one gets older, one’s taste inevitably will change. Yet, I think mine has fundamentally stayed the same. I have always valued my own space, my own time alone, a good book, no noise and peace and relaxation. Living in a world where traffic and noisy neighbors has always been at the forefront I always managed to get away from it all. People thrive on social interaction but can do without it 55 percent of the time. I definitely need to be alone and do not need the chaos of the world at all times. It is my sanity that is at stake when I do not have my quiet time. That is what makes me so unique. I am a loner by nature. A person like that must live in an a way that suits their style.
My style is different than most, so what I need is vastly different than most. Though I do love the traditional things that so many love and need, I don’t know if I could live without animals and music. When I was a 13-year-old girl, I fell in love with an artist known as Michael Jackson. I mean, I can’t imagine not being able to listen to musical prodigies like the King of Pop. Music is essential for me to have in my life because of people like Michael Jackson. I know that, as a loner, what makes me happiest is channeling my energy in a way where I can devote it to talents and interests of mine.
I have an interest in writing and that is a necessity for me. I can’t imagine not being able to sit down and read. Reading opens my mind to other universes and has taken me away from a dysfunctional family. Transporting me to another world away from dysfunction. Now that’s a necessity. Necessities are things that cannot be replaced. Love can never be replaced. Love is a necessity only when my other necessities are in existence. If for some reason I could not have alone time, a book, animals, and music, I could never just have love. Love wouldn’t be a part of my life. I couldn’t just have a husband but none of those other necessities. The love would crumble.
Necessities are situations, people, places, things, and experiences that make my soul happy. As a loner I need a certain amount of alone time. There would be no way that I could just have 35 good friends and a man and be happy without all of the other necessities. As a loner, my quiet time and my sanity come first before love.
Let’s move on to money. Money is required to survive in this physical life. But money can’t buy me happiness. Money is paper and paper equals food, clothing, and other possessions. It doesn’t make the soul happy, not in a way that matters. I’m a deep type, and I look for more than some material possession. Changing this world and making it a place for people and animals to live in that is respectable matters to me. Not how many clothes I have. Like I said, money can’t buy me happiness. Living in a world where necessity must exist requires living in a world where I raise my people up. Everyone can change the world but every nation must start with its own. I know who my heart belongs to, and taking people who have been so oppressed and raising them up out of hell is a requirement.
Last, but not least, my final necessity is finally being able to enjoy who I really am and giving back to the world. Life without necessity couldn’t ever exist and that’s why we must all try our best to bring it into our lives and eventually everyone else’s.
