Love is commonly known as the most powerful emotion, one that is said to overrule hate. The word “love” is defined as “noun; an intense feeling of deep affection. noun; a great interest in pleasure in something. verb; feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone)”. But we also can take this word and define it with our own feelings and experiences we’ve endeavored.
But by the different definitions provided, it leads us to the idea that there can most definitely be different types of love. There is love for doing things such as activities like sports or art, love for the family members you have, love for your significant other, and the list goes on. Although we can distinguish the different types of love we can feel/experience, we still have the power to define them in our own way. Maybe this is what makes love so much more powerful than any other emotion.
Hate still stands as a strong emotion, along side love. As I mentioned previously. Hate is defined as “verb; feel intense or passionate dislike for (someone). noun; intense or passionate dislike”. But we still have the same ability to define hate, just as we do love, with out own experiences and feelings. With that, hate could easily become more powerful than love if one let it. But can love really always overpower hate? Also, imagine a world without hate, or without love. There would be no balance.
That being said, my questions to you are, what do you believe is the strongest emotion? How do you define love? What experiences and feelings have led you to define love? Do you believe hate is stronger than love? How do you define hate? And lastly (in honor of Thanksgiving) what about love makes you thankful?
