Inclusion: We must feel part of something, and people who don't have this will often fear being abandoned or left out. This was the most important one.
Control: We must feel like we have some control over our lives. This doesn't mean being a control freak.
Affection: We must love and feel loved.
Do you think these three things hold true? Is there anything you might add? Do you think you are missing any of them?
I know that I am missing the inclusion part b/c I often feel left out, even if I'm just imagining it. I've tried to make myself part of something, but so far I haven't found a place where I fit in. Taking classes is helping me.
I've got the control thing down...maybe too well at times!
If I need affection, I know I can go home. It's not the same as having a man's affection, but it works.
