Love

Have you ever thought about love? How much love is important in our lives? Can we live our entire lives without love and be happy with it? I think it's impossible. I felt all of my personal experience. I lived alone in a really long time. And during this time I was really bad. I looked at the many happy couples with envy. I know that many people can really enjoy the solitude ... I tried to do it with everything I had. But I can honestly say - loneliness can be a maddening completely. For this reason, I decided to stop this and to find someone with whom I can share happy moments of my life. What about you? Who likes to be alone? Who understands me that we need to be with someone who can understand us, hug us and share the love? :side:

Love, a kind of emotion, is a result of psychologically evolutionary adaptation, also, like other emotions such as anger and curiosity. I want to answer this question in two parts through the lens of evolutionary psychology. First part the interrelated parental and intimate love; second, the importance of love on pair-bond and motivation. When we were young, our parents should foster us with almost all material and spiritual support, collaboratively, and most importantly, unconditionally and selflessly. Otherwise, as infants, hardly can we survive because of the longer period of development. :cheer:

That's the unforgettable parental love, which is similar to intimate/sexual love because they are interrelated. That is, we're searching for a responsible and capable parent for the future child[ren] while looking for the other half for ourselves in the courtship period. Because of the long period of gestation, those offspring of the emotional stable fathers who are tightly pair-bonded with their wives are advantageous in passing the corresponding gene from generation to generation. That kind of fathers/males are always highly motivated by love and hence can find and gain more goods and materials to better nurture their kids. :cheer:

All these mechanisms have been programmed in our brain by natural selection. Thus, we inherently and spontaneously know what love means to our survival, development and reproduction and then know its importance. It is because at the beginning, God created the world with all his love. Since he has loved us, he also teaches us how to love with one another. If people don't have love, everyone will become selfish and only know grasping as more advantages for themselves as they can. Just like the Sodom, people only knew how to satisfy their flesh desire and did not allow any positive things to exist. As a result, they were punished and destroyed by God. ;)

Now take China as an example, though its GDP level keeps increased in recent years, the society atmosphere becomes worse and worse. There are all kinds of unrighteous things every day. Such as Adulterated food, poor air quality, persecuting Christians, mess of ethics, people's indifferent attitudes toward others' tragedies and so on. Therefore, if we don't worship God and know nothing about God's will, we won't have true love. Love can get everyone connected together and accomplish many things with one heart. Otherwise, we won't remembered by God any more just like Sodom's destination. :silly:

We are social animals. Having social connections improves our chances of survival. Love is the emotion that makes us feel connected to others and care about what happens to them. A mother's love for her children compels her to care for them and improves their chances of survival. Having friends, companions who care about you and will help you when you are in distress improves your chances for survival. Social animals who are able to form strong emotional bonds of mutual support have a better chance of survival. So it is one of the most important things in our life! :P

Maybe it's because you must love yourself to allow yourself to achieve your goals, to make your dreams come true. Maybe it's because you must love yourself and notice your own value to love others, see their qualities and respect them. Maybe it's because you must love your work do do it with excellence, becoming valued as a professional. And to love your work you must love yourself to allow yourself to do something you love without fear of having no money to pay your bills. Maybe it's because you need to love yourself to face your fears, your doubts, your insecurities, your low self esteem and every negative feature the environment helps you to develop, to, free from these influences, become really happy. :)

Maybe it's because you must love yourself to have healthy children, offering love to them. If you don't love yourself you don't offer real love to others. Maybe it's because you need to love yourself and others not to allow others to abuse you. Maybe it's because if you don't love something or someone, you lose your humanity. Maybe is all of the mentioned above, plus other details. Love motivates us to sacrifice for others, a key ingredient in the survival of our species. Like religeon, love can lead to evil, however it most often manifests as a willingness to sacrifice one's own immediate self-interest for the benefit of others. B) ;)

Love is the consolation prize in our messed up world. It's the motivating factor for many people (am I loved, do I deserve love?, how do I find love?, etc.), when they're not driven by fear, that is. Problem is that it's great when it's good, but oh boy, does it suck when it's bad. Love is the first positive emotion we feel when we come to life, long before we are born. If is the one good thing we all always become without asking for it, without having to do anything for it. It leaves such a deep impression that we never forget the impact of how good it feels, no matter how far it is put away. No matter how deeply it will be covered. :) B) ;)

Deep inside, we will always crave love. That is why love is the strongest emotion. Why it is the nicest feeling. That is why love can literally conquer all. There is no thing more powerful then love. Because we are too intellgent and fear annhilation more than any other animal. Without love, we would becoeme trapped into this body and the short time allocated to us, with love we live on. Love is universal. Without love of your job, you can't do your work easily, there is no willingness to do that. Without love of yourself, you can't appreciate who you really are and can't love others. :whistle: :whistle:

Our culture is driven by our ego’s needs, which means that if we are important, we have a chance of being recognized as wonderful, great, or admirable. Yet, hidden from us is life’s true meaning to love. This is not held in our ego’s position, but by our Highest Self which carries the mission to love. Love is what we live for and is truly the most important thing in our lives, whether you’re a king, queen, or a person who lives on the street, whether you’re poor, unemployed, alone, struggling, old, or just graduated with a Ph.D. The real mark of greatness is shown through love’s actions of kindness, compassion, helpfulness, and caring. :woohoo:
