In the middleHow many times have you felt stuck in the middle of an argument by two people that you love?  You can see both sides of things, but there’s an impasse and the relationship appears to be falling apart, or the opportunity will be lost and at no small cost to those involved.

In the case of children involved in a marital dispute, they just want Mommy and Daddy to stop fighting. In the case of a business deal, or government shutdown, people want an agreement to be made that will allow people to move on with their lives without paying a higher price for someone else’s poor decisions or stubbornness.

Did you know that you have needs that you think are wants, and wants that you think are needs?

In modern, “civilized” countries, we are inundated with advertising slogans and media ploys to encourage us to spend more and desire more. As we have grown as a nation, we have prospered to a point where the fine line between “needs” and “wants” are so blurred that most people really can’t tell what they truly need … versus what they really want.
