Are You Letting Your Needs Show?

So many needs–Maslow’s Hierarchy

I recently took a pretty substantial roadtrip (total mileage: 2500ish). If you’ve been reading along with me for a while, you know that I love the chance to get out and see new things. I also get the chance to listen to some good music and a few good audiobooks along the way. This time, my music shuffle offered up Bill Wither’s classic “Lean on Me” several times. I think everyone knows this song, at least enough to sing along to the chorus. But what struck me on this trip was a verse that I had not heard clearly on other listens:

“Please, swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won’t let show.”–Bill Withers

This verse spoke to me so powerfully, because it seems to describe exactly what I hear so many of my clients say.
