Is love a choice?
- Not really sure
There is a lot of talk about people ‘searching for love’ or ‘falling in love’ or ‘finding love’.
So much so, that many people have an ideal of what love means to them, perhaps built up by years and years of bullshit movies, books and TV.
So, is love something that you ‘find’? Is there ‘the one’ out there for you somewhere, and if you never find ‘the one’ you’re destined to years of loneliness?
Or, is is a choice? Is it about making a conscious decision about a person you care about, to love them, to create something significant out of something that perhaps starts small, to make a commitment?
If you think about it, one train of thought relies heavily on fate and chance, and another relies of giving, caring and sharing. Some people believe that any relationship that requires ‘work’ isn’t meant to be.
Which one is it?
