Inadequacy

What is it in humans that makes them want to feel needed?

Nobody wants to feel inadequate.

Sometimes we end up feeling like it though. Because there's always someone better, someone better for the "job" in a sense.

I kinda feel that sometimes we give people the power to make us feel this way. And I don't think that we should.

There's always gonna be someone better. But God has still given us specific talents, and gifts.

And as long as we're using those gifts to glorify Him, then there's no reason why we should ever feel inadequate...

That's all

i want to feel needed because i like to think that someone cares. for me, it's not about if someone's more qualified for the job, it's that someone thinks about me other than myself.

Yea I agree with you John. There's that kind of "wanting to feel needed" and then there's the .. "I'm not good enough at this specific thing - wanting to feel needed"
