Five Minute Friday: NEED

About ten years ago, I dated a boy who told me right off the bat he was codependent.  I had no idea what that meant initially, even as he explained that he “needed to feel needed.”  Our relationship came to a rapid demise after just a few months.  He told me that because I owned my own condo, had a great job that took me all over the country, and had a great family, I didn’t need him.  Looking back, he was totally right.  I don’t need any man to feel complete or feel loved.  Jesus alone completes me and fills my heart.

My husband is my best friend.  I married him because I want to spend the rest of my life with him, not because I need him to fill some selfish hole within me.  I tend to think that a symbiotic relationship makes for a better foundation than a parasitic one.  Our relationship is strong because we compliment each other and spur each other on to grow.

About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
