yes. needs conflict. it is inevitable.

i wish we could, i wish we could :-(
but the fact is...
we are social animals
and we can't stay in a state of removed detachedness and uncaring forever :-(
in fact...
we might feel removed and detached...
but we still have needs and we still care
no matter how much we protest that we do not.

and then there is the point...

that other people need things from us too...

:-(

i'm sorry :-(
