Love is pure and known by anyone, but its definition is not always unique.
Let us remember our ancestors meaning, for instance, Socrates maintains that “love is neither beautiful nor good. Love cannot be beautiful because it desires to possess what is beautiful, and one cannot desire that which one already possesses”(Snippet, 1985,p.43). Moreover, love “is not good, but merely a means to be the attainment of things that are in themselves.” Nevertheless, Plato believes that “love consists in seeking what is right for others, never for oneself”(Soble, 1997,p.17).
According to Diotima, “Love is neither mortal nor immortal but is a spirit, which falls somewhere between being a god and a human”. In other words,” love serves as intermediaries between Gods and humans”(Morford and Lenardon, 1999,p.133). Hence, and without doubt, socially, love is the core of our family’s morality, as couples culturally formed are kept together by rules of virtue and honour, either from traditions or religious creeds. In any case, love plays an incredibly significant role in our lives as parents, offspring, brothers.
Love is this glue that keeps our morality active during the worse crisis.
Such an intense feeling of deep affection called love could refer to a person and/or something else. In your life circle, the family, you love such as your offspring, parents, partner. Nevertheless, you love to do things, so love is your trigger to move forward with your life. However, be careful with passion because it can sometimes make you blind. Thus, do be realistic and keep your feet on the earth.
Your body, your mind, your spirit need to be loved by others, especially those loved by you. Otherwise, you will be unhappy, and your world will turn upside down. Only your optimism and positive emotions will always help you follow your appropriate pathway to a long and healthy life…
