The thought of owning a house is a very persistent and overarching thought for those who are not landed when they were born. This is definitely true, for I got a friend, a brother-in-law, and a cousin who used to rent their own units when they were young, and it seemed that for these three distinct persons, the desire to own a home was more persistent like a hovering cloud or spreading fog that imbues every aspect of their undertaking. Well, I may be a bit exaggerating in describing these three distinct persons, yet my observation, if I am not mistaken, always vouch the fact that their longing to own a home is more intense as compared to those who were landed when born. Is this type of peculiar attitude a veritable fixation on something that they were deprived of at the onset of their lives? I can only surmise and conjecture if their seemingly intense desire to own a house is indeed a fixation that is hard to shrug off.
Basing our thought on the “Hierarchy of Needs” of Abraham Maslow in psychology, it is easy to say that once a particular basic need is not yet met, it becomes a persistent drive which imbues every action of a person. Say, for instance, if I were always deprived of food, my main focus in life then would be to find food and devour any simple dish that is set in front of me. In the same manner, if I were deprived of a shelter at the onset and in the growing stages of my life, I would definitely hanker for a house that I could call my own. Similarly, if I were born in the ghettos of Cleveland, and have been deprived of the stylish lifestyle of those living in Calvert, Maryland, I would definitely wish to live in Calvert, and given a chance, I would surely buy one of the spacious homes for sale calvert county md has to offer. Truly, what I lack at the onset often colors my inmost decisions, and for this reason, I would surely deem it a great privilege to be living in the luxurious and posh mansions somewhere beside one of the beaches in Chesapeake Bay. The reason for this is based on what I have said earlier that what I was deprived of in childhood is often one of my foremost yearnings in adulthood.
Of course, I may be frustrated by the circumstances around me and limited by my stature in life, yet, if I got enough willpower—which works like a juggernaut that is never impeded by any other obstacle—I would surely obtain what I would want. Moreover, if I subscribe to the idea that “if there is a will, there will always be a way,” and have assiduously put this maxim in practice, I would surely weather all the frustrations and hurdles along the way to achieve and attain what I was yearning for. I might be availing of a mortgage loan for now, and then would repay it in full after thirty years or more. Yet, given that strong willpower, I would surely never give in to any frustration in life and eventually attain the ideal home I am dreaming of.
