Mini-inquiry: The world needs me

 

The world needs me.

TA: I need me.

That’s more true. I need me to be here for me.

I need my love, my understanding, my appreciation.

TA: The world doesn’t need me.

The world did fine before me, and will do so after me.

The world is doing fine even when I am not very engaged.

The world is doing fine when I am engaged with other things / not thinking about the world.

Other people do what I thought I would do. They bring to the world what I imagined I would bring to the world.

Note

I notice this thought is quite painful for me.

And it’s a huge relief to see it’s not true.
