The Importance Of Feeling And Knowing How To Experience True Passionate Love In Your Life
When I was young I believed love was for a good thing – if my parents loved me then I would also be love. I didn’t really think beyond that kind of thinking. As an adult I have changed and now believe that love is for the reason that it makes a person want to be around you, wants to be involved with you, wants to build a relationship with you. This may sound like something out of a fairy tale, but it’s not. Love is a group of behaviors and emotions characterized by passion, intimacy, commitment, and care.
Romantic love is described as intense, passionate love, such as when two lovers exchange love poems or hold hands while walking on the beach. It involves emotional intimacy and care. It also involves sharing physical intimacy – cuddling, kissing, touching, and oral sex. It also involves trust, safety, respect, and admiration. However, love can vary greatly in intensity and can shift and change over time. For example, loving someone for only a few days might be passionate love, while being in a committed relationship for many years could become more of a shared friendship.
Another common misconception about romantic love is that it is only a good thing. However, it can be used for negative things, such as using it to get back at a partner who has been abusive, using it to satisfy one’s ego, or even using it as a way of having one’s own way. As well, although passionate love can be positive and beneficial, it can also often times lead people down the wrong path. In fact, passionate love can sometimes be used to justify unhealthy behaviors, such as cheating.
Another myth that I see repeatedly in relationships is that you only find true love when you give it to someone. This is not true! The truth is that you will find true love when you give and receive it. This is what was mentioned above, that you will find true love when you give and receive it, not when you give and receive it.
On the flip side of the coin, some people believe that if you don’t “give” them what they want (or need) in a relationship, then they have no reason to continue to spend time with you. The problem with this theory is that giving up on the relationship in order to gain more of what you don’t want isn’t healthy. Ultimately, it ends up that the other person feels ignored and not respected. As a result, that person ends the relationship and hurts you because you gave them “more than you wanted or needed.”
What does love mean to you? What do you want from a relationship? How do you want others to treat you? These are very valid questions to which you should be able to provide an honest answer. If you can’t find a good answer for them, chances are that you aren’t truly “seeing” the love in your relationship the way that others see it. When you learn how to experience true passionate love, you will find that you are connected to all kinds of people, and that your relationships become more meaningful and fulfilling.
