Why do we love?
I refuse to believe that love is just a reaction of a few chemicals in the brain, simply because love in itself is such a complicated feeling that people have died for it. Surely a chemical alone is not responsible for it! Is it in a quest to complete ones'self? Or keep that one person so close that you'll know that you aren't alone fighting this world and trying to live a life...? Is it just the feeling of being loved that drives us to love others? If it is all this ... then why look for someone else's love, when all these feelings exist within your house and amongst your family?
Surely its not because of the physical aspect of a relationship? That is not love then ... is it? If that is so, then the only difference between your family and your spouse is sex ... which does sound absurd! Its blatantly confusing. I guess we'll never truly figure out what drives us to seek love outside the four walls of our house (more than four for the architecturally challenged :P)
At this point of time, I'd prefer my parents and my family's love to anyone elses, because atlesat my family's love is fixed. Its content and constant. I won't lose it because of the way i dress, look or talk to them. Similarly, I don't love them because of the things they buy for me ... I love them because they are my support system, who are always there to help me and lookout for me whenever I might need them. And I am willing to do the same, as soon as I am capable of doing such a thing...
I don't think we'll ever realise why is it that we love ... family or anyone else...![edited] i realised how dangerously close this comes to Valentine's Day. this is not meant to diss anyone who might enjoy celebrating the day with their 'loved' one. This also has no connection to any person living or dead. Any similarities is accidental and unintentional. [continuation of Love Is Only A Feeling]
