My wife is brilliant.
Last week, completely out of the blue, she asked, ‘How many ways can you love someone?’
It’s one of those magical questions where you begin to respond before realising it deserves a little more thought.
The list could, and should, go on.
Our conversation was wonderful. Some insights included:
Often the smallest ways to show love, have the biggest impact.
Grand gestures feel better for the giver than the receiver.
Are actions really better than words?
I guess it depends on the actions and the words.
When I write these messages, I rarely resist asking The Google for some global filtered advice. This time I’ve discovered (thanks to Cosmopolitan) there are 8 types of love.
Eros (sexual passion)
Philia (deep friendship)
Ludus (playful love)
Agape (love for everyone)
Pragma (longstanding love)
Philautia (love of the self)
Storge (family love)
Mania (obsessive love)
Where’s Unconditional Love, Cosmo? That must be the best.
Today’s question. How do you show love?
Please share your thoughts below.
I love you.
