“Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice.” ― Fromm, Eric
Eric Fromm, the German psychoanalyst, and psychologist wrote a book titled “The Art Of Love“. In his book, he breaks down the different types of love that the human-animal can experience.
With the two major loves being Mature love and Symbiotic love (immature love).
Mature love is a love that requires that two individuals come together BUT DO NOT GIVE UP THEIR INDIVIDUALITY. They come together to grow with one another. And they grow by learning from one another.
Immature love, symbiotic love, is the love that a vast majority of people around the world have, and sadly only understand.
In this love, a person comes into a relationship believing they must give up their individuality and connect with their new lover.
And for many people, who have been thoroughly conditioned to believe this, they live a majority of their lives under this FALSE LOVE.
So, in this article, I will break down all the negative things about this FALSE LOVE and explain what mature love is and how you can only get this love by…NEVER GIVING UP WHO YOU ARE.
