The Maslow hierarchy of needs is an interesting scheme to classify our needs. The most necessary one are at the bottom of the pyramid; Physiological needs like food and water are the most essential ones. Then follows safety, the feeling of love or belonging and having self-esteem, namely thinking that you are worthy.
