Of the different forms of love, which is the most meaningful to you?
We all love in many different ways. What are the different forms of love and which is the form of love that holds the most meaning for you?
Emotions, respecting one another, attitudes, body language, sex..................
As for me, of all the forms of love (forms which are attributed to the Greek) which I choose the most...Agape is the ultimate choice of love because this love is really attributed to the Greek being unconditional and self-sacrificing love. This kind of love supersedes to all! The other forms of love, in my opinion, follow!
My most meaningful love is the love from God, then love from my parents, my love for my husband and my children.
To me there is no difference. We love from the heart and with our heart and soul. No matter who or what, we should love selflessly and that is what love is all about, thinking of others above ourselves and wanting what is best for them.
I am familiar with the Greek categories (agape, eros, philia, and storge), of which I find agape most meaningful. But I am most inspired when I see creatures caring for each other across any boundaries of self-interest---animals of different species that bond or assist each other, or animals and humans saving each other's lives, or people who help others out of pure compassion.
Agape is indeed the most meaningful to me because of its absolute power. It is that somewhat hidden or perhaps conundrum that seems unnusual in this world yet so important in the next. Thus, it is indeed agape that is most important to me and has the most meaning for me. My best friend and I were comatose at the same time and this agape played an important role in our survival and recovery...
I think the most important love is (self love). Without it you are likely to make many poor decisions for yourself. This leads to selecting the wrong mate for yourself, staying involved with toxic people for far too long, not giving your children a loving and responsible co-parent.
People who have "self-love" and "self-respect" for themselves also have the ability to love and respect others. However they are selective with whom they allow into their inner circle. Those who lack self-love and self-respect for themselves are often led astray and taken advantage of. No one should become a "doormat" in order to please others.
I believe the greatest form of love is to be selfless and unconditional. It would be like Jesus dying for our sins or in a mortal perspective, Mother Theresa dying to serve the needy, our parents raising us and loving us uncondtionally..
To me, my parents have shown me unconditional love and it has been the most meaningful to me thus far:)
