Need, Its Power & the Feelings

As humans, we always have a need.. everytime we fulfill our basic needs, we always crave for higher n higher needs.. Need can defined as the 'physiological or pyschological requirement for the well-being of an organism'. I would define every need as possessing some strange power hidden within. Power, in this case, would be the power of this need that can affect the feelings of a human. This power is a pure perception of the human mind, but holds reasonable accolades with respect to the feelings attached with the need.

Complex..?? Naah.. For keeping it simple, every need can be either satifisfied or would require some time to fulfill. For eg. A need like buying a chocolate, you might have a specific need for Cadbury but because of Stock out, you might end up buying a Kit – kat rather. In this example, the need of a Cadbury had very little power and could not affect your feelings because of may be you could do away with the other option available, Kit – Kat. Also, This need was fulfilled very quickly due to its easy availability & also available options. Wow.. that was simple, isn’t it.. Cadbury nahin toh Kit Kat hi sahi… But figure this out…
You like a girl, oh.. I cannot say she is a need, but to respect the scope of this chimera let me say she is your need. Is there any alternative?? Probably not incase you care for her very much. Well what happens in this case, the power of your need is so much that it affects your feelings. This need if not fulfilled will surely affect the feelings. In other words, the more the power of the need, want or desire, the more the affect seen on the feelings attached to it.

For better functionality of the explanation, I provided a need for a girl you like, the same may be expressed for a need, say, a car, a laptop, also would carry the similar power ranges. For me, they would be certainly below than the power of the need expressed in the example.

Finally, stressing again on saying that Power of the need is a pure perception of the mind which affects the Feelings attached with that particular need. Alternatives to a particular need would always help keep down the power of that need, which would indeed help in keeping the Feelings low.

But does every Need have alternatives.. !!
