You kill it at this kind of love.
There are many different kinds of love, and some we do better than others. But not everybody is naturally gifted at every kind of love. Some people make excellent parents and shower their children with love and affection, and others are better with the kind of love that’s intense but not long-lasting.
The ways we fall in love can vary as well. You can grow to love someone, fall instantly in love, or find yourself in love without having made any effort to love. The most confusing state is being in love one minute and then completely out of it the next.
The heart sometimes hangs on to love and other times seems to let it go easily. But we are never without love and we never stop giving it, even if it changes its form. We love our families and our friends in different ways than we love our country or whatever spiritual powers we believe in.
The degrees in the way that we love are infinite, and we’re never without the capacity to love. When we’re brokenhearted and believe that we’ll never love again, there are still other ways in which we love such as showing compassion and helping others, focusing on self-love, or expressing love in a physical sense. When we show even the smallest amount of love for something, it’s still love, and it still feeds our soul.

There are some kinds of love that we’re more adept at. If you’ve had your heart broken, you probably aren’t going to rush into a romantic love and may focus your emotions somewhere other than another person.
We use the word love to express heightened affection. You love your job, your neighborhood, and even your hair stylist. It may not be a romantic kind of love, but it is still love and it feels good to share it.
