Quotebook: Our Need to Belong

Share via:

“Our need to belong is not rational, but it is a constant that exists across all peoples in all cultures.  It is a feeling we get when those around us share our values and beliefs.  When we feel like we belong we feel connected and we feel safe.  As humans we crave the feeling and we seek it out.”  Simon Sinek (P. 53, Start With Why)
