The need to belong is something that is ingrained in each and every one of us. There’s no escaping it. It’s part of our DNA.
Did you know that there is a ‘science of relationships’? Scientific studies have been done in order to understand this need for belonging. The “belongingness hypothesis” states that people have a basic psychological need to feel closely connected to others, and that caring, affectionate bonds from close relationships are a major part of human behavior.
I believe that we have this deep need for connection because we were created in the image and likeness of a relational creator.
Why do you think we have this strong need for relationships?
