Learn How to Define Love – Obsessive & Compulsive Love
Love is the best gift of nature. It is not a tangible object but a way of life. It is the feeling that we receive from another person and it is the ability to give and receive without expecting anything in return. To love is to give and to love is to be. Love envelops a range of positive and strong emotional and psychological states, from the deepest personal satisfaction, the strongest interpersonal bond, to the easiest pure joy.
This article is not intended to provide an exhaustive list of what love is, nor is it written to define it. However, I would like to share a related reading that can help people understand their own feelings and actions related to love. If you feel trapped or unhappy in any relationship and you want to take control, you will need to identify if your happiness is conditional. You should also know how unconditional love differs from relationships based on some sort of exchange of gifts or favors. In this related reading, I will help you do just that.
In my related reading, I will share three styles of relating to another person and you will see how each relates to you and your partner. There are really three styles, which relate to how you relate to a partner. The first style is related to the physical feelings you experience when you are with your partner. People may experience physical love, but this only lasts for a short period of time.
The second style is related to unconditional love. You find true love when you have given your whole self to your partner and you are fully satisfied and fulfilled by the whole you have given. When you come to your senses and realize that your true love means complete satisfaction for you, then you have found true love. Then you move onto the third style, which is to experience feelings of connectedness or oneness with your partner. You know you are loved and needed when you experience these kinds of feelings.
Many people may struggle with the idea that there are different kinds of love. They may also struggle to understand how others differ from them in this area. For me, I think it is important that we recognize that everyone has their own unique love style. That is why we can say that true love is not about feeling the same or liking the same things as someone else. True love is actually finding your own place in the sun. It is being content and finding joy in what you are doing whether you like it or not.
Some of the things you may notice in your related reading is that you feel all alone and out of place if you are suffering from obsessive love. This is because you are focused on your partner and on only them. If you let go and focus on your entire world, then you will begin to find true love. You will be able to fully enjoy the company of your partner.
