Our Need to be Important
Is this something new or have we always been this way?
The need to be important, or possibly the need to feel needed.
With technology at our fingertips, all the time, with mobile phones that are equivalent to miniature computers, and therefore constant contact, non-stop communication with the world, does it add to or take away from our sense of importance, of self worth?
So many of us feel the need or maybe the desire to respond instantly to emails, text messages, facebook comments, instant messages such as BBM and What’s App as well as tweets.
Do we feel important when people take an interest in us in this way? Do we not value ourselves, or feel a sense of self worth without being constantly in touch, constantly available, constantly in contact with so many other people?
Within my life coaching work I find that a lot of people do feel that they “need” to be responding instantly, that they “must” reply to emails and messages even when they are in “switch off” mode, relaxing with family, socialising with friends, or away on holiday.
They want to share information, news, thoughts on social media sites such as facebook in order to feel important, valued, to know that others are interested, waiting for feedback and comments.
My work as a life coach is about you feeling worthy within yourself without these external elements to make you feel OK. Feeling truly worthy comes from within. When you feel good, worthy, valued and confident you can enjoy these other forms of contact and yet not “need” them.
That’s a much better, healthier place to be.
