It occurs to me that at their core, people want something basic. They want one thing more than any of the other things.
My Want, is to be Loved. I realize that I want other things too, but what drives my decisions - conscious and otherwise - is almost always that Wanting to be loved. My wife, at the core, wants to be Free. The difference between what we Want seems to drive a lot of conflict and causes misunderstandings between us.
Other people want and are driven by other things, like to be Respected, to be Free, to be In Control, Understood, and on and on.
Tell me what you think. What do you Want, Cyburbians? I'm interested.
