Gist_With_Chadele; Love and Mental Health.


Love has been a favored topic of philosophers, poets, writers, and scientists for generations, and different people and groups have often fought about its definition.

While most people agree that love implies strong feelings of affection, there are many disagreements about its precise meaning, and one person’s “I love you” might mean something quite different than another’s. Some possible definitions of love include:

•  A willingness to prioritize another’s well-being or happiness above your own.
•  Extreme feelings of attachment, affection, and need.
Dramatic, sudden feelings of attraction and respect.
•  A fleeting emotion of care, affection, and like.
•  A choice to commit to helping, respecting, and caring for another, such as in marriage or when having a child.
•  Some combination of the above emotions.

LOVE AND MENTAL HEALTH;
Although almost no one can agree on a single definition of love, most people do agree that love plays a significant role in both physical and psychological well-being. Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of love. Love’s role in mental health is far-reaching, but some examples include:

•  The fact that babies who are not shown love and affection in the form of frequent holding and cuddling may be developmentally delayed or ill.
•  Feeling unloved is strongly correlated with feelings of low self-esteem and depression.
•  People who both feel loved by others and who report loving other people tend to be happier.
•  Love can play a role in long-term health, and feeling emotionally connected may help increase immunity.


Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. Therefore, leave love everywhere you go.

Till we meet again next week, this is Chadele. Thanks for reading. Ciao!
