I don’t mean blame Maslow himself. But pretty much when relationships don’t work out due to being in different places in your life, you can chalk it up to Maslow’s hierarchy.
- You want to go traveling while he needs to work?
- He wants to go to a meditation retreat while you need to tend to the house and kids?
- She or he is too stressed out over having to find housing / health insurance / or part time work, while you are not satisfied in your relationship when your life is going fine?
Blame it on Maslow’s Hierarchy.
It’s the best way to stoically accept incompatibilities in needs / desires and try to move on OR understand that it is a temporary situation. That alone will get you closer to the pinnacle, not that that’s always the best place to be. What do you think?
PS — What is the “sex” on the bottom level vs. the Love level I wonder?
PPS Of course, maybe he’s just not into you.
