Feeling Hurt by a Love Relationship? Consider Intimacy
Love is the experience of having a deeper connection to another person, one that transcends the physical level. The bond created through love bonds a person to his mate. Love is not just about physical attraction or lust. Love transcends the physical and emotional levels. It involves feelings, thoughts and emotions. Love encompasses a whole range of positive and negative emotional and psychological states, from the strongest religious virtue or greatest personal fondness, to the easiest pure fun.
Love begins with shared desires, shared values and a shared commitment to the other person. Emotions are the key to creating intimacy. A warm, sincere and genuine expression of love can transform our world. Love is the first step to healing, and the process of healing itself builds a stronger and deeper emotional bond. Emotional intimacy and affection create positive emotions that lead to all the other more fulfilling emotional states.
To transform our world into a more positive place, we must become more conscious of how love and intimacy are transforming our lives each minute. A daily practice of expressing our feelings with our loved ones can make the difference between painful and unfulfilling love relationships. The practice of romance and affection can lead to greater feelings of compassion, understanding and forgiveness.
How do you feel when you share your home with an animal? Do you long to have company over for dinner? Do you long for cuddling with your dog or cat? If so, then love is in the air, and it is important to nurture those strong feelings of love within ourselves as well as with others. Nurture your relationships by being generous with time, sharing affection and giving rewards when you have been supportive.
The power of love is so strong that it can transform negative relationships into loving relationships. We may be smothered by someone who only wants to coddle us and give us their affections. When this happens, our sense of self diminishes and we lose our sense of self-worth. When we decide to connect with another person, it is important to focus on the positive emotions rather than the negative.
Remember, you can have a healthy relationship with a person whom you deeply care about. However, if you do not feel the same way about them in return, you have committed a great act of disloyalty. You have jeopardized your own happiness and well-being by forming a relationship that leaves you feeling unhappy. If you love another person and you feel unloved by them, you have the power to make a positive change in your life. Talk to them, show them your affection and ask them to love you too.
