Hierarchy of needs

Hierarchy of Needs model


When i worked the phones , one of the useful templates was”Maslows Hierarchy of Needs”. This is a loose diagram on the basic structure of personal needs a person maintains as he/she moves towards “personal actualization” or growth and social productivity as Maslow saw the individual.
The real motivation of this diagram ―published with Motivation and Personality  often taught diagram in psychology classes , was to suggest a foundation of “needs” were to be discussed when studying the potential of the individual and the transition to actualization of positive accomplishments in family, community, ecosystem, etc.
As  one might expect ― an actual diagram for each person would differ a bit from person to person… this point- has even  been debated in psychology articles over the decades.

SO  in  working the phones in the past;  after allowing one to vent as i was trained::
if it was clear the calling -person was in crisis, i would sway  the “client” to focus on his basic needs.  try to get them to focus one the tenant that needed addressed the most at that moment.
Its very easy to forget ones self  in work , family- , and distractions these days…
Our my needs being met on a daily basis? am i weakening my health by not caring of myself
am i responsible to myself (or even others, arguably)  by taking care of my own tenants?
