Can we choose to love someone?In this episode, we ask: Is love a feeling or choice? In trying to find an answer, we share our fairly strong and different points of view.
Throughout our conversation,
We examine the theory of one person who believes that love (or more specifically, being open to love) is always our choice.
We discussed the role of love in an abusive relationship.
We try to discover what we can choose in the relationship using logic and reasoning versus what our natural inclinations are regarding love as a feeling.
We even touch on the way our primal instincts are triggered by attributes such as appearance and odor to influence our desire or willingness to mate.
Is it possible to force ourselves to love someone when we don't actually feel it?
Can we choose to avoid or stop loving someone?
Do we have any control at all when it comes to love?
We would love to hear your thoughts on the topic so join the conversation!
Looking forward to hear from you!!
