Want vs. Need

I often hear the people around me share the saying that--

"You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only option!"

or that

"I'm strong because I NEED to be. "

I don't think this is wrong.
I do need to be strong.
But I think there is more to it.

I WANT to be strong.

I want to make my husband proud of me.
Maybe it's not everything, but to me, just that little change in perception makes a difference.
I'm doing this by my own choice, not because I have to.

And I am proud of that.

So much is just a matter of perspective.


  1. I think perspective is the secret to life, the secret to happiness, and possibly the secret to something else too. :)
