How To Understand A Human Being

ChrisAgnos

I am a human being.

I have needs.

I have a need for healthy food.

I have a need for clean water.

I have a need for shelter.

I have a need to feel safe and secure.

I have a need to feel included.

I have a need to be accepted as I am.

I have a need to feel useful and needed.

I have a need to love and feel loved.

I have a need to be validated and heard.

I have a need to be acknowledged for my gifts.

I have a need to feel like I belong.

When my needs are not met, I am more likely

to be fearful,

to be selfish,

to be reactionary,

to take more than I need,

to be irrational,

to be angry,

to be violent,

to hoard,

to be individually focused,

to engage in risky behaviors,

to commit crimes.

I will be unable to empathize and care for the needs of others.

However, if my needs are met, I am more likely

to be generous,

to be grateful,

to be inspired,

to be insightful,

to feel alive,

to be helpful,

to be community-minded,

to have self-love and respect,

to want to give,

to be grateful to receive,

to have wisdom

I will be able to empathize and care for the needs of others.

I am a human being

and this is how I can be understood.
