What do I do to feel needed when everyone that needed me doesn't?

   I too have often felt this same way, and after I sat still and listened to the spirit in the wind I was reminded that I succeeded in getting those people to the place where they are, in that they know how to satisfy the need that is within the power to satisfy.

   So what do we do? Just like in the beginning when you observed, observe again because there is a new group of people who need what you have to offer. There’s a new group of people, go find them!!!

    • I have felt this way many times now that my children are young adults.  The role of parent changes whether I like it or not.  While my children may ACT as if i am not needed, i have to remind myself that i am needed by them...just not as openly.  I have to remind myself that my children will let me know, either by word or by deed, that they need me.  I can’t inject myself into their business without an invitation, unless of course, they are in danger.

      We all need each other in some way.  That is what makes us human.  If a person needs/wants to feel more “needed” there is a plethra of organization that NEED and serve the NEEDY.

    • Personally I’m glad that I’m not needed as much by my kids.  They know where to find me and believe me...will if they NEED something.  

      I’m enjoying my freedom now that I don’t have to do every little thing for them.  When I was raising them it was my goal to make them self sufficient adults and I believe I have almost achieved that goal.  Both my boys do well for themselves....not to say we didn’t have some struggles.  

      There are a lot of people out there that need when I get the feeling that I need to be needed...I help someone else.  In fact....I get great enjoyment out of helping others.  I just keep in mind...I can only do so much too.  

      Life have to go with the flow.
