LOVE'S DARK EDGES - From Fear to Fulfillment

By Douglas C. Myers, PhD

Romance, Psychology & philosophy | eBook


Everyone has the inherent right to love and be loved, but not all are able to sip from desire's cup filled with contentment. If love is the best measure of feeling complete or fulfilled, then what is love and how is it acquired? Why is love so difficult to experience or maintain for many? Why is attraction to another usually predetermined by a person's own character? What does it mean to 'fall in love'? What is fear's influence when seeking love's affirmation? Does the path of self discovery lead to love's best view? The writing identifies what is necessary to be able to love fully. An understanding of the nature of feelings also distinguishes love's essential quality. Requirements for experiencing the fullest extent of love are identified first in the section 'REQUISITES OF LOVE', and later discussed throughout. Each necessary aspect in loving is understood by viewing its formative phase requirements during childhood. The satisfaction of each developmental need is viewed as foundational, or a prerequisite, to desire's later achievement during maturation. Love's embrace is understood as the accomplishment of heartfelt desire assisted by faithfulness and trustworthiness. Love cannot be physically observed or heard, only felt. Love's influence is viewed as a mystical dance leading to confidence and fulfillment, and illustrated at the end with anecdotal commentary.
