Here is a list of needs
You have needs because you have a body. Your body will constantly communicate with you somatically about them 

Here is a list of 'faux' feelings

LIFE ALIENATING LANGUAGE

Marshall Rosenberg differentiates between language and thinking that is 'life alienating' and habitual and language and thinking that is 'life supporting' and natural.
 
Life alienating language is connected to our fight/flight/freeze/fawn natural reaction to danger.  Bringing a 'needs consciousness' to our sense of danger creates an inner warming process and supports self-care, self-connection, choice and agency.
