A need is something that we as human beings cannot and should not live without, our basic survival depends on it, things such as air, food and water are needs that every human being has. A want is usually something materialistic that makes us feel and look good on the outside but it has no baring on our survival or on our progress as a human being, I have been guilty if going for the want over the need on various occasions, only to find out that it has done nothing for my growth as a human. In today’s society it is so easy to go after the materialistic things of the world but we must stop and think before we make any decisions. How is this choice going to effect my life and will it improve my life in any way? Always stop and think but never over think because when you over think you just might think your way out of a beautiful opportunity.
