Emotional Love Is A Healthy Relationship Style
Love is a powerful emotion that can be very difficult to describe in words. Love encompasses an array of positive and strong psychological and emotional states, from the calmest intimate feeling, the highest personal passion, to the easiest basic pleasure. Most often, love is thought of as a singular, internal state that is experienced on a one-to-one basis with another person. However, love can occur between individuals and in a group as well.
Love between humans occurs in a variety of different forms, with different types of intimacy coming into play at different times. Intimacy is often involves intense feelings of friendship, caring and desire for companionship. This is often why love between two people of the same sex often involves intense feelings of lust for the opposite sex.
In romantic love relationships, the brain areas that facilitate feelings of love are activated. The reason behind this is not really understood. It is believed that the brain’s reward system – which includes areas that stimulate areas associated with pleasure – are activated during romantic relationships. Other studies have shown that individuals who experience greater levels of stimulation, even without romantic love, show higher levels of brain activity associated with other emotion. As we all know, love is a complex emotional state that can involve feelings of passion, trust, care, intimacy, desire and care for others.
The brain regions that engage in romantic love are also related to experiencing higher amounts of self-esteem. Individuals that develop feelings of intimacy with another person tend to feel a sense of worth and value. This helps them to pursue relationships with others believing that they are more desirable. When feelings of worth and value are present, it can help to increase self-confidence levels and confidence levels. This can help to improve relationships with others. The brain regions that facilitate the experience of confidence are then used when a person starts to feel love for another person.
Developing an affectionate relationship can help to strengthen a relationship. When two people enter into a loving and romantic relationship they are more likely to be invested in the relationship. Individuals that are in a committed and intimate relationship are more likely to remain involved in the relationship for longer periods of time. One of the reasons that commitment is maintained in a relationship is that individuals in a relationship are experiencing extremely intense feelings of love for the other person.
Being in a committed and loving relationship is healthy. However, many of us fall into a set of relationship patterns where we remain attached to our partners and do not move out of those patterns. It is important that we discover our own love styles and develop those within our relationships. When we are committed to another individual, we can find our own healthy relationship patterns and strengthen our bonds with that individual.
