50 Things Your Life Doesn't Need

11 Things I Don't Need in My Life:

[First off, let's break down the word "need," shall we? It's both a noun and a verb. It's intransitive and transitive; you can do it and it can be done unto you. Mrs. Merriam and Webster describes the noun version as "a necessary duty: obligation;... a physiological or psychological requirement for the well-being of an organism." It's also an acronym for the National Energy Education Development project. But let's assume that I am to take eleventeen facets of my life that are not obligatory nor necessary to be functional. That means I can't include things like taxes and rent (obligatory) or going to the dentist (necessary for healthy functioning). But do I go so far as to include things like my ridiculous cable package? Granted, I don't "need" it, but I want it and like having it. I also don't "need" my closet full of shoes, but I don't foresee giving away my collection anytime soon. So how do I go about making this list? I think I'm going to ruminate on this one and read some other posts to see how people interpreted the parameters of the word in question.]
