#018 Love is NOT an Emotion

        Back in college, me and my friends refused to accept the words of Morgan Scott Peck, particularly those on LOVE.  We were young and yearning to be “in-love”, to feel all tingly and weak-on-the-knees, to feel butterflies in our stomach and then grab a net to catch some more in the meadow where they fly low!  When we read his words, our grand ideas of love were crumpled up and thrown in the basket.  NOOOOO! Love IS an emotion! Love IS a feeling!

Falling or Flying? by you.

Are we falling or flying?

          Four years later me and my friends know better.  We’re still working on it but we know now how right he is.  Now that we’ve all stumbled upon conflicts and issues and “hard feelings”, it’s no longer just about attraction and the heydays anymore, persistence, understanding, patience, and many a virtue have become essential for the relationship to survive, or thrive and grow. 

Love is not a fleeting emotion by you.

Love IS

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

M. Scott Peck

  1. You know, whenever I feel bad about things, I always remember what you wrote before in your Tabulas blog. About Lucy taking a swim. It has always reminded me of what I value most. 🙂
