If I feel like I’m needed, I feel complete. I have no spouse, no children, not even a significant either. I am alone, and so I give what I can. My legacy will not be a child I fathered and raised, but the lessons and love I have given.
Seemed like almost everything would just bounce off of me; I could take the hits and come out unscathed. But something happened.
We are complete beings, with three critical aspects of our lives: mind, body, spirit. Like our days, each supports the other. These are out of order for me, as they are for most of us.

Some time ago, a nun I met on a campus where I worked was asking me about my family. I explained that I had no wife, or kids. "Well, maybe God wants you to be single!" "Yeah, I don't like God, either," was my snarky reply. A few years later I was married.
Be happy. Live your life as you choose to live it, not as others tell you it should be lived. Love, openly and honestly who you love. Help when you are in a position to help, and ask for help when you have needs.
