Striking A Line Through A Quote I've Always Fancied

"I don't need anyone in my life that don't also need me in theirs."

I've been doing some thinking about this quote these past couple of days. I don't like it. Because I've always had a tendency of getting more attached to people than they get to me. Which always results in quite a bit of pain. I also feel like the quote is backwards without stating it; that if someone needs me in their life, I should need them in mine.

Now, I'm not a selfish person. I would do something for someone else merely because it would make them happy, and making people happy makes me happy. I'm not a cold person. But I feel like this quote wants me to need people that need me. I pretty much live my life by quotes, and I am positive that that's not going to end well, considering I am also very analytical and will end up overanalyzing my quotes and then my whole existence will fall to pieces.

Back to the quote. It's not true that if people don't need me, I don't need them, because I do. It's more a matter of wanting.

"I don't want anyone in my life that doesn't also want me in theirs"

Could be more accurate. But not totally. Sometimes, I want someone in my life, but experience that the feeling isn't mutual. This is a tricky thing. It appears that, no matter how I turn this thing around, it's never accurate.

"I don't need anyone in my life that doesn't want me in theirs" - false.

"I don't want anyone in my life that doesn't need me in theirs" - definitely not true.

"I don't want to need someone that doesn't need me" - better..

"I don't want to need someone that doesn't want me" - hmm, true..

"I don't want to want someone that doesn't need me" - true, too.

"I don't want to want someone that doesn't want me" - that's the truest so far!

"I don't want to want or need someone that neither needs, nor wants me" - there. I think I finally got it right. Think I covered it all now. Or...?
