Just what is it?
And why is it something that many people want to have or experience?
Plenty of books and movies portray love as a romantic ideal; however, love is actually more complex than that. There are many aspects to this phenomenon—psychological and philosophical theories—but having all this knowledge doesn’t automatically mean you will be able to find the right person for you and achieve “happily ever after”.
There is one more factor we need to consider: our own personal beliefs about what love is or isn’t supposed to be. These stories we tell ourselves tend to influence our experiences which then leads to problems when it comes to forming relationships.
In this episode, in the first of a two-part session, I have taken a special outtake of my Clubhouse session on the neuroscience of love, relationships, and heartbreak. Hope you enjoy!
