Fulfilment from belonging

Wellbeing is unique to every single person and relates to more than just happiness. There are many versions of what constitutes wellbeing and in some cases is described as “more than a sense of happiness and satisfaction, wellbeing means continuing to develop as a person, being fulfilled and making a contribution to the community.”

The Six Aspects of Wellbeing

  • Autonomy

The ability to make decisions for one’s self, be independent, regulate your own behaviour and resist social pressures

  • Environmental Mastery

Having the ability to make effective use of one’s surroundings and being able to choose or create contexts suitable to individual needs

  • Positive Relationships

Possessing empathy, concern and affection towards others so as to build long-lasting, trusting relationships.

  • Purpose in Life

Having goals, aspirations and the sense of living a meaningful life.

  • Personal Growth

Seeing potential in oneself, openness to new experiences and so having a continued feeling of self-development.

  • Self-acceptance

Acknowledging and accepting all aspects of one’s personality, both good and bad. Being kind to oneself and feeling positive about current and past life.

Someone whose needs are not being met in any of these areas may still maintain a sense of wellbeing as everyone has their own personal brand of resilience.
