life’s essentials

I’m thinking the basic needs are food, shelter, and air. Is air included?
We are very bold in getting it.

Love and attention are also important. I mean I’ll say they should be part of the basic needs. There’s that study about 2 baby monkeys. One has a caring mother but no food. The other one has all the food but has a ‘manequin’ mother. As you all know, the foodless but with a caring mother baby monkey survive longer.

So I wonder why are we shy about asking for love and attention, especially from the opposite sex. We work hard to go to school. We are aggressive in applying for jobs.

Why not with love and finding that person to love? This goes to my ‘conservative’ friend. You know who you are. =) Giving you some boosts to go and accept that guy’s invitation. =)
