Q & A

How does one define love?  I know that’s an age old question, but periodically I revisit the thought.

    • Love is honoring the other person.  It is the foundation for all healthy relationships!

    • Wow, good question. ohhhh
      And I have no answer other then it’s a feeling. An intense feeling. And it’s different for different people in your life. You love your child differently then your spouse. You love your spouse differently then you love your parents. And so on.

    • So Ingrid, let’s say it’s in a romantic sense does the feeling wane over time or does it stay the say forever?

    • I agree, Teeky. As you go through time in a relationship, you change, you grow. I believe you can remain in love, it just becomes a bit different.
      I think familiarity plays a part. You certainly don’t experience that same kind of love that you experienced at first. It’s almost like a high wearing off. You still feel it, but it becomes a bit more subtle.

      Summerbreeze, everytime I hear that name I can’t get that Isley Brother song out of my head.

    • I’m trying to assess myself and a relationship I’ve chosen to be in.  I really dislike when we have disagreements or simply misunderstand one another.  So I find myself remembering all the reasons why I love him when these times surface.

    • I agree with all of u and LOVE what Minnow said.....ran across this recently too:  

      • "True Love is neither physical, nor romantic.   True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be"*  

      AND SUMMERBreeze: You can love someone with all your heart, soul, & spirit and not be able to have a "happy" day-in-day-out relationship with them. The mind and a heart are amazing things and don't always seem to agree. My general rule of thumb is it is paramount to be happy more often than you are not, in all that you do - make sure you smile inside and out more then you ever think of crying. The good thing about relationships though - and the "mind" part - is you have a chance of growing and learning from the simpl misunderstandings - and NOT repeating them. My husband never picked up on that.
