The Beatles were very wise indeed.
I had read many years ago that what a child needs in order to grow into a fully functional adult are three things. The need to feel secure in their environment. They need to feel as if they matter,(this relates to self esteem), and if these are in place the most important of three happens. LOVE.
If you did not receive your full supply of these important emotional growth factors you will spend the rest of your life looking for them. The problem is, if you did not receive them you do not know what to look for, so you most likely will be looking in the wrong places.
I am in love with love and have learned a lot about the subtle nuances of what love really means. We have just created a social community on ning @ http://howilove.ning.com .
