Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Identity and Needs”
Next week’s topic will be “Moral Identity”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- Strengthening our self-esteem through self- affirmations or encouragements enables us to combat frustrating habits, reflex tendencies, procrastinations, or negative thoughts by increasing self-control. Tell yourself you can, and you will. All it takes is a little daily encouragement from you to you.
- When our most basic human needs are satisfied, happiness becomes achievable. But only through the processes of self-awareness are those personal needs recognized. Work a little each day to identify what satisfies your needs and then work toward fulfilling those needs. Soon it becomes habitual, causing you to flourish and put your best self forward in life.
- Social acceptance is an important factor in human development. We may find acceptance in communities such as families, friends and co-workers, yet others may not. Make an effort and share an act of kindness by helping to fill that same need for social acceptance for someone else. As unique as each of us are, our most basic human needs don’t differ that much.
- Everyday we are presented with opportunities to laugh. Don’t let them pass you by. Think of it as an exercise in you and a personal benefit that reduces your stress.
The Insight: Each of us has different needs to achieve happiness and success in life. None of us need the exact same things to succeed as the next person, but there are some needs that are fundamental to shaping a healthy self-concept. It’s no coincidence that these basic needs center on positivity. Make sure to satisfy your need for encouragement, happiness and self-esteem by maintaining a positive outlook and loving yourself for who you are completely—good qualities and flaws alike.
Have a wonderful weekend!
