love refers to anything that I enjoy
What's important to me in life is something that changes with varying circumstances that I encounter in life, but something that continually guides me in my life and helps me prioritize my goals and aspirations is Love
. In my opinion, love
refers to anything that I enjoy, respect and can willingly spend time and effort towards achieving and maintaining, and this meaning helps differentiate between the things in my life that matter to me and things that I should let go.
I love watching lectures on psychology, I love my girlfriend, I love my brother, and I love being not dead; I don't love random people on the streets, I don't love expensive cars, and I don't love food; this clarity of what I love is significant to me because it helps me make certain decisions in an otherwise unpredictable world, and it helps me utilize my energy doing things that matter to me.
My 4-year old decision to pursue the study of psychology was based on my love for understanding the human mind and behavior even though nobody in my family approved of this decision, and it has shaped my life into one of satisfaction and intellectual growth.
I like to think of life as a constant stream of events, choices, and decisions with no ultimate consequences but rather ongoing conflicts, and I'd much rather want those conflicts to be of things I love rather than things I don't.
