No one looks at Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as showing you what you need to work on next.
And given that only a minuscule percentage of the population ever reaches the higher levels of the needs, that is a stupid thing to do.
You don’t automatically advance to the higher levels, no matter how much “high” desire you have, no matter how empty you feel, how locked in you feel, how much you hate that you are meek, or abused, or have no freedom.
It takes work, courage, and ingenuity. f… RIGHT?
Ingenuity? You surely don’t have that. You can argue, you can fight, you can yell, you can complain, you can run away… but ingenuity? Not something you engage in.
