Posted January 10, 2018 08:00:24It’s the word that can help you feel better, it’s the feeling you get from a friend or family member, it can also be a word that’s used to describe how you feel in your life, says the love website Lovepedia.
“Love can mean many things, but for the love of God, it means nothing less than God’s love.”
But love can also mean love of another person, which can be more positive, says Lovepedia, which features more than 2,500 websites dedicated to loving each other.
“It can also refer to the love that you feel for someone else, whether you’re alone or in a relationship,” says Loveipedia.
“Love is about giving in to the heart of another, but it’s also about being generous, being kind, caring and understanding,” says Dr. Michaela Smith, co-author of Lovepedia and a practicing psychiatrist.
“In the words of the apostle Paul, love is not for selfish reasons, but rather because of our love for the other person.”
So how do you know what love is?
“Love is not an emotion, but a feeling that you have, and it’s expressed by your brain when you think about the love you have for another person,” says Smith.
“There are a lot of feelings you can feel that are associated with love, such as joy, joy of being loved, happiness, love of a stranger, love for a stranger’s children, love and trust, and so on.”
“We have to be careful to not confuse love with anger or resentment,” says Elizabeth Hargreaves, the director of the Lovepedia website.
“When you feel the love in yourself, you feel a sense of joy.
It’s not just a feeling of love that comes from a feeling in your body, or even a feeling like you’re being hurt or abused.””
Love doesn’t just mean a feeling, love also means a commitment to another person or a person’s relationship, love can mean a long-term commitment to a relationship or a love that doesn’t last forever,” says Hargraves.
“You can also feel love of someone else without actually being a romantic, says H.B. Wright, founder of Love is Not a Game, an online forum.”
