Some universal human needs

Some universal human needs include:
1. The Need to Belong – an innate
preparedness to form and maintain at least a minimum quantity of
interpersonal relationships
2. The Need for Meaningful Existence.

If
these needs are frustrated people start suffering from anxiety, have a
higher chance of dying at a younger age, and have a poorer immune
system.
