…Continued from previous post.
So yes, love is a feeling and like every other feeling, it is not always person exclusive unless wee make it so. it is a the result of a causative. the way we feel about people is sometimes beyond our control. see full post here.
That is not all there is to say about love however. here is the twist i spoke of in the prequel to this post.
Although love is experienced as a feeling, it is expressed as an action.
Most people are aware of the experience of love but not of the expression of it. Well, thats not a wonder though, the human kind ordinarily tends to be selfish. A feeling usually is something you sort of receive while an action is what you give. We are ordinarily more interested in what we stand to gain from people and things than what we stand it give.
Love isn’t complete until you do something about it. as a matter of fact, what validates love as love is what it makes you do. the feeling you experience is just a part of it, what you do with that feeling or what the feeling makes you do is another. my hand is me, but it is not all there is to me. so love isn’t complete if it is only professed, it must be shown.
Our actions and decisions are products of our thoughts or and feelings. The choices a natural man makes are sourced from two main channels feelings and/or reason ( the supernatural man has a 3rd dimension which is his spirit; and he does well to always follow his leading. Also, ladies claim have a super power called intuition. lol. Well, that really is just a superscript of their feelings faculty).
Again the stronger force between your reason and feeling is the one you feed the most. If you are undisciplined and always act on impulse, it implies that your feelings are stronger than your reason. it implies that you have fed your feelings more than you have fed your will. Its an unsafe way to live and even your relationship will suffer for it in the long run. But a disciplined man who has learnt to control his feelings and to value thought and reason will on the overall make better choices and live a better life. (This thought of mine is subject to interpretation based on context. I also believe strongly that your heart (innermost self) knows better than your head).
In essence, what you feel might be completely outside your control, but what you do isn’t. That’s why, though its possible to feel love for more than one person, it is not ideal and you shouldn’t and you can choose not to. Ideally, i think you shouldn’t love more than one. You shouldn’t devote your time, efforts, and emotions to more than one person. You shouldn’t feed your feelings to a point where it controls you and make you take actions that you would regret especially if you are already in another relationship or when you notice that a potential relationship could be a toxic one.
In conclusion, take control of your love life. dont settle for anything less and dont give anything less than you can give. if your emotional status is complicated, its because you’ve allowed it so. chyange that today, feed positive feelings, starve toxic ones. love should be healthy, but you have to choose it so. love is better when you make it exclusive, you have the power to do so and so do i.
