Video – Lost in a Moment of What He Needs


So much in therapy is about what someone needs, and about how those needs impact our decisions and  relationships.  Our needs can be as fundamental as the basic need or safety and survival.  We also have needs for belonging and love.  Esteem needs include achievement, confidence and respect.  Actualization needs top the list, pulling us to fulfill our potential and be the best people we can be.

Often one person’s needs conflict with another’s, and actions meant to satisfy one need may create another need, perhaps in people one doesn’t even know.

This song by Edie Brickell has always stood out to me, because it identifies several specific moments of need.  It presents a tragic example of how one person’s need can create a cascade of moments of need in others.  It is a sad song that captures just how painful and overwhelming needs can be.
