A Deep Dive into: Love [pt.7] – The Philosophy of: Being in a relationship

This is a deep dive into the one word that may be more confused or have a greater subjective meaning than any other in the English language: Love. So what does it really mean?


Every relationship (and friendship) must end. Which is why is it absurd that we must go into every relationship hoping it will last forever. But this is something that can make it all the more meaningful. The assumption that someone won’t leave you, or that something is forever doesn’t lead to appreciation, gratitude and enjoyment. There is nothing that is permanent, and just like a relationship, the appreciation for its temporary nature (of it and our lives) can bring us even closer and make it all the more powerful.
