Belonging & Purpose

Originally written & published in my monthly newsletter, Oct 15 2019

Here’s a hypothesis I’ve been developing over the past few months: After our physiological needs are met, humans need a sense of self-actualization to feel joy/fulfillment. A lot of the time, what makes people experience happiness both when that isn’t/is present, is a strong sense of belonging or purpose. If someone lacks both, they can feel miserable. If they have one (belonging/purpose) they can trudge along, not the most joyful person but working on something and living at a state that gives them some sort of joy or fulfillment.

Important: I think you can have purpose without a sense of belonging, but I think most of the time when people have a sense of belonging and no purpose, their purpose can develop to helping and caring for the people that provide them this sense of belonging.

If you have a strong sense of both, you can reach a level of joy/fulfillment that allows you to work more deeply on self-actualization. When I think of those two buckets of things as what people need, and the extent to which they have a strong sense of belonging/purpose helping them become superpowered, I think of how they’re primarily established by culture & community.

Personally, I’m using this to figure out the systems and strategies needed to develop community within TKS.
