I know Christmas time is here and Valentines day is slowly but surely approaching, but finding love is NOT from a guy in a diaper with a bow and arrow that comes once a year. True love is not determined or defined by a holiday.
Dating is purely over rated, and lets face it… It’s exhausting. Some people talk about the desire to be in love but they aren’t willing to put in the work. Question…Is love really that elusive? Perhaps it’s that some people fall in love with the idea of being in love.
Love is a set of emotions and behaviors characterized by intimacy, passion, and commitment. It involves care, closeness, protectiveness, attraction, affection, and trust. Love can vary in intensity and can change over time.
It is associated with a range of positive emotions, including happiness, excitement, life satisfaction, and euphoria, but it can also result in negative emotions such as jealousy, boredom complacency and strife. While people are bound to experience some negative emotions associated with love, it can become problematic if those negative feelings outweigh the positive or if they start to interfere with either person’s ability to function normally. Relationship counseling can be helpful in situations where couples need help coping with miscommunication, stress, or emotional issues.
When it comes to love, some people would say it is one of the most important human emotions according to verywellmind.com. Yet despite being one of the most studied behaviors, it is still the least understood.
When it comes to choosing a person to make a life partner, many couples will tell you that they “just knew.” And while for some, that answer is enough. But for others it’s more deliberate. I tend to veer towards the latter and believe that love is a decision. Love is a choice because your actions determine if it lives on or ends. You are in control of how you act in your relationships and how much you push past conflict and challenges.
When you decide to work on communication, trust, intimacy, or emotional security, you’re choosing love.
