Everybody needs somebody

Whether we work in a large business, a small business or micro-business, we all need somebody to talk to, particularly in the challenging times we are in at the moment.

This is equally applicable in our home lives. We are predominantly social animals and need company to lead a fulfilled life.

Clearly, this need varies according to our individual circumstances and personal preferences; however the need for human interaction is a part of who we are and the importance of it is clearly demonstrated in Maslow’s ‘Hierachy of Needs’.  In his model, Maslow explains that in order to reach our full potential we need to have a social connection with others and know where we fit in the community.

So, what is your support network looking like right now?

Think about who you have to go to, someone that is willing and able to listen to you and understand what is going on for you in your life, – to enable you to grow, develop and be the best you can be.

Think about the following situations and put some names against who is there for you.

So, who:

• Challenges my thinking?
• Cheers me up?
• Can I share my good or bad news with?
• Can I rely on for feedback?
• Is around when I need them and is prepared to sit and listen to me?

These are only a few situations of many that we find ourselves in on our journey through life and discover that sharing them with someone else makes our journey more fulfilling.
