Need to Belong

Need to Belong

The Need to Belong was defined by American psychologist, Abraham Maslow. He believed that people are social beings who have a need to belong to a group, to love others, and to be loved. He further stated that if people could not meet this need of belonging, their need for self-esteem would not be able to be satisfied. In other words, without being accepted as part of a group or by others, self-esteem doesn’t develop properly.
