Love is something we all long for in life, but it comes in many different forms. In order to nurture our relationships — whether they be romantic, platonic, or familial, we need to understand every kind of love, what it means, and what it needs to grow and last a lifetime.
1. ROMANTIC LOVE.
Romantic love is the stuff of legends. Wars have been waged, sonnets have been penned and Netflix binge-watching has been induced by tales of romantic love. We pine for it, crave it, talk about it and pick it apart whenever we can. And when we have it, we’re often thoughtless with it or undervalue it. It’s important to be grateful for what we have in our lives – whether past or present – and appreciate what a rare, beautiful and mercurial love it is.
2. LUSTFUL LOVE.
Whether it’s a one-night stand or a partner you can’t get enough of, we’ve all been there. Lust is a powerful, passionate feeling that often gets a bad rep. Sure, it can make you make bad decisions, but it sure as hell gives you some good memories too. Savor it.
