The conditions for successful human development are very similar. Like the acorn, we have basic needs that must be satisfied for us to thrive. We need shelter, food, and water. We need a secure and warm attachment that will provide us with love and nurturing. We need intellectual and spiritual stimulation. We need encouragement and empathy. We need to be acknowledged and celebrated. We need to be protected from traumas and abuse. We also need some degree of healthy friction with the wishes and wills of others.

We tap our inner wisdom, and we learn to trust ourselves as never before. We learn to make creative adjustments. Carl Rogers (1961), often considered the father of humanistic psychology, felt that the person who is psychologically free behaves in the following ways: • He is more able to live fully in and with each and all of his feelings and reactions. • She makes increasing use of all of her ability to sense accurately the existential situation within herself and in her environment. • He makes use of the information his nervous system supplies, using it in awareness, but recognizing that his intuition may be, and often is, wiser than his awareness.

Only you can fill it by learning how to soothe yourself. If you commit yourself to the process of working Steps 8–10, you will open the door to your lost integrity and emotional resilience. You will be able to build a positive self-concept based on the reality of who you are (your true-self), rather than on some idealized image of who you think you should be but never can live up to (your false-self). You will build a way of living that works under any condition. You will develop self-respect and discover the healing powers of forgiveness.
