Having what you need versus having what you want

Life is so good when you get what you need. I suppose “need” differs for everybody. Money has never been a need of mine. Of course it’s fundamental to things like food, shelter, and clothing. But having a lot of it never filled me.
I’m pretty sure that love is all I “need”.
I want money. I want love. I want things. There’s a whole bunch of stuff I want.
But having recently in the last two years, met my need for love finally:
Everything in the world tastes sweeter.
And on top of having the most important thing that I need, and that is Breia:
Everything I want, if I get it, tastes so much sweeter.
And, notably, if I don’t get what I want, it’s really OK. I have what I need.
They were practically children when they wrote it, but the Rolling Stones have a line like that in one of their songs:
You can’t always get what you want. But if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.
I’m saying something like that, in that if you got what you need, it’s really OK not to have everything you want. It doesn’t weigh on you. And once you have what you need, life is never miserable.
Thank you Breia.
