Love is a verb.

“Love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is the fruit of love the verb or our loving actions. So love her. Sacrifice. Listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her.” (stephen covey) Don’t base your relationship around feelings. Feelings come and go like the wind. Love is a choice. As you develope the relationship and nuture it through loving them, you will be rewarded with the feelings of love.

Basically- I want you to know that you have a choice as to whether or not you’re a slave to you’re emotions. Decide to take control and respond accordingly to values, instead of circumstances.

    You give good advice, at times self-serving, but mostly in agreement with what my psychologist says 😀
    I hope you take your own.
    You shouldn’t cheapen out when it comes to those paper diaries I found so relative in their authenticity, now that you have an el-gay 😉
    PS~ the right woman is out there for you, (just not on myspace).

        so you like my real journals eh? why so relative in authenticity?

  2. i agree your advice is very true, however isn’t it feelings that spark the actions that nurture love. One day you wake up and realize your are completely and utterly happy, blissful even, and you know that this feeling derives from your significant other, so you call her, see her, nurture her and her you, you are in love. Feelings are what give color to life and experiences and you should not shut them out completely. Scan through your memories, they are stored in your mind because of the feelings you had during that experience. It is okay to express your emotions it shows that you are a living, breathing, caring human being, but as you said don’t become a slave to them; balance is key. As Socrates had advised: know thyself, persue everything in moderation.
