L-O-V-E, for these four letters, poets, writers and painters alike have committed some of their best efforts. Wars have been waged, and we continue to leave the cinema with teary eyes. But when asked what it actually is, it becomes rather elusive to pin down.
Some regard it as an instinctive emotion completely out of our control, without condition or explanation. It just happens. Some say it is a choice, a choice we would have to make everyday to be with someone. Some say it is nothing but a chemical reaction in our brains causing us a rather unhealthy obsession sprung from infatuation. I say it is whatever you want it to be, hence it is nothing but an illusion we create for ourselves to live in.
I remain a supporter of practical compatibility being the major requirement for healthy relationship, balanced with personal principles to govern things like fidelity.
Tracy, on the other hand, is a believer that there is more to love than it being whatever we believe it to be. She believes it is a real thing and it is a strong requirement for your relationship to thrive and prosper.
Even if I were to agree with Tracy that love exists, and it is a real thing, we would then have to ask if it is with or without conditions. Tracy, staying true to her faith, is of the opinion that love is without condition. As you can guess, being the cynical skeptic, I find love riddled with conditions; in other words, love can fade or die (or does it get disqualified as being love if that can happen?)
Love is sure a complicated topic full of all the usual confusion encountered when trying to explain aspects of the human condition that lie outside reason and rationality. This happens mainly because when it comes to love, much like God, no one really knows what they are talking about (myself included) as they can only say what love means to them. Either way, it is a subject that we must still discuss and I hope you guys enjoy the video.
