By reading this article and watching this video, I'm meditating on the topic of relationships.
This diversity of uses and meanings combined with the complexity of the feelings involved makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states.
Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.
For an unrequited love, you should also focus on telling yourself why that relationship wouldn't work and creating opportunities to notice other people.
For an ex, remind yourself of what led to the breakup and keep yourself busy when you start feeling blue.
Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection ("I love my mother") to pleasure ("I loved that meal").
