You are welcome back, and thanks for your contributions, it is still the number one relationship program Temi-T Heart clinic and today we are looking into the various types of love and which is the best to practice.
Love means a thousand thing to a thousand people but according wikipedia, ” love usually refers to an
experience one person feels for another. Love
often involves caring for, or identifying with, a
person or thing (cf. vulnerability and care
theory of love), including oneself (cf.
narcissism). In addition to cross-cultural
differences in understanding love, ideas about
love have also changed greatly over time”. love therefore is a feeling that matures with time, and it could be towards human and animals. Also according to THELOVE.ONE; Love is a special and complicated emotion
which is quite difficult to understand.
Although most people believe that love
revolves around the heart, it actually occurs
in the brain. Artists, poets and painters all
epitomize the heart as the love symbol, but
it’s the brain that generates chemical signals
to make people understand love. There are
different forms and styles of expressing love.
To describe these styles, the Ancient Greeks
came up with four terms (Eros, storge, agape
and philia) to symbolize the four types of
love. Let us look at these four loves in
TYPES OF LOVE:
This is an unconditional love that sees
beyond the outer surface and accepts the
recipient for whom he/she is, regardless of
their flaws, shortcomings or faults. It’s the
type of love that everyone strives to have for
their fellow human beings. Although you may
not like someone, you decide to love them
just as a human being. This kind of love is
all about sacrifice as well as giving and
expecting nothing in return. The translation
of the word agape is love in the verb – form:
it is the love demonstrated by your behavior
towards another person. It is a committed
and chosen love.
The phileo love refers to an affectionate,
warm and tender platonic love. It makes you
desire friendship with someone. It’s the kind
of love which livens up the Agape love.
Although you may have an agape love for
your enemies, you may not have a phileo
love for the same people. The translation of
the word phileo is love in the noun – form: it
is how you feel about someone. It is a
committed and chosen love.
It is a kind of family and friendship love. This
is the love that parents naturally feel for their
children; the love that member of the family
have for each other; or the love that friends
feel for each other. In some cases, this
friendship love may turn into a romantic
relationship, and the couple in such a
relationship becomes best friends. Storge
love is unconditional, accepts flaws or faults
and ultimately drives you to forgive. It’s
committed, sacrificial and makes you feel
secure, comfortable and safe.
Eros is a passionate and intense love that
arouses romantic feelings; it is the kind that
often triggers “high” feelings in a new
relationship and makes you say, “I love him/
her”. It is simply an emotional and sexual
love. Although this romantic love is
important in the beginning of a new
relationship, it may not last unless it moves
a notch higher because it focuses more on
self instead of the other person. If the person
“in love” does not feel good about their
relationship anymore, they will stop loving
Now after critically considering and analysing the different types of love, you will agree with me that the Agape love is the best because it is all encompassing and is able to survive in all situation.
