You Are Driven by the Need “CONNECTION/LOVE”

All of us have basic needs, not merely desires but profound needs that underlie and motivate every choice we make. There are six basic needs that everyone seeks to fulfil.

What you need to know about the need CONNECTION / LOVE

General Overview:

Everyone needs connection with other human beings, and everyone strives for and hopes for love.

An infant needs to be loved and cared for during a long period of time if it is to develop normally.

Infants who are not held and touched will die.

This need for love continues throughout our lives.

It is epitomized by the concept of romantic love, the one person who will devote their lives to us and make us feel complete.

In some cultures, romantic love doesn’t exist; it’s replaced by the love of relatives, friends, and tribe.

Some people rarely experience love, but they have many ways of feeling a connection with others;  in the community or in the workplace.

The need to be loved is characteristic of all human beings.

Code words for love/ connection are “togetherness, passion, unity, warmth, tenderness, and desire.”
