American Self-Actualization Psychologist, Carl Rogers, once said that “being understood is the most basic human need.” All humans strive to be understood, relatable, part of a community, and as Carl Rogers put it, attain the highest level of “human beingness” possibly achievable.
Figuratively, to be human means to be able to relate to one another. In order to relate to one another, a first step is to understand we have the same goals. If one could imagine holding a compass in a maze. It doesn't matter where one is standing in that maze, the compass shows the same guiding directions for us all. Those directions take us to our mutual goals of Fairness, Equality, and Community: We all want to be treated fairly. We all want an equal voice. And we all want to feel a part of a community at large.
