Well-being and prosperity

Shadow values are the ones that we don't see or that we hope people don't see in us.  This is typically because society or our parents see these values as undesirable.  Yet these values are inescapable and necessary to balance out our altruistic values.

Shadow values include the need 

  • to be Important
  • to be right
  • to be seen / noticed
  • to be validated
  • to be heard
  • to be touched
  • to have power / wealth
  • to be in control
  • justice / fairness
  • to achieve
  • to be affiliated / connected
