7 Reasons Why Love is Important for Human Beings

We all speak about it.  Its a nice fluffy word and it feels nice and warm.  We miss it, They say it often hurts and it can.  I know…

The majority of texts in any language you can imagine, period of time, culture and region have been written on this subject and it never seems as if we have covered every aspect of this incredible feeling.

It has been described as an emotion, a way of life and even as the most important thing there is.

While there are many aspects and faces of love, we are choosing to put our focus traditionally on romantic type of love.

Here are 7 reasons why love is important and what you can do to find yours.

1.) Connecting with Another Human Being

This may seem trivial, but it has been the key to the functioning of society as a whole for the last 5000 years.  The ability to have an affectionate and intimate connection with another person, the importance of the touch, and to have that fondness returned as an anchor in order to base the rest of your development and future around it.

2.) Path to Self Discovery

Love can reveal a lot about ourselves that we may not have already known.  Acceptance, level of forgiveness and patience.  Our preferences, tastes, morality, thought processes and instinctive reactions when we are in love reveal a lot about our character to ourselves upon reflection, especially considering that we are in situations where we may never have been before.

3.) Sex

It doesn’t have to, nor should you demand it, but romantic love for your partner, when returned by them, can lead to intimacy and sex.  Sex is one of the most important elements in our lives, a crucial need that has to be fulfilled, and what better way to scratch that itch than with someone you love?  Intimacy and sex go hand in hand.

4.) It is Excellent Source of Motivation

When you are in love, you feel you always want to create, you are inspired, you aim for better, you are not just spending time in vein sense either.  That is to say, it is not merely for the sake of your partner loving you more (though that certainly is a motivation) but also, to do better in life, to set new goals, and generally strive for the best.  The upswing in positive thoughts is also noticeable and that itself makes a big difference.

5.) Love is a Reformer and Teacher

Do you have a bad habit that annoys your ‘significant other’?  If your love feels reciprocated, you will likely be pulled naturally to defeat this habit and get rid of it naturally.  With love in your heart, you feel this positive pull to move forward with freedom.

In the same way, if you are in love, and you make all of the above efforts, but for reasons the love goes sour, you still learn many vitally important life lessons even through the heartbreak.  Just remember to be kind to yourself, and that if you had one bad restaurant experience, you’re not going to be giving up on eating out, though of course, we realize the two are not the same.

6.) It is The Greatest Feeling

Isn’t it?  But don’t take our word for it, just read any of the majority of the classics of the twentieth century that deal with the topic, or watch any of the classic films (or even the not so classic ones) etc.  You get the drift. Being in a healthy, two way, loving relationship is an incredible feeling, and is one of the pinnacles of the brief existence that is our life.  And make no mistake, it is a feeling, a state of being, one most definitely worth striving for.

7.) The Future Is Yours

Love serves us also as a support structure for us to build our ship on.  Whatever future you envision, whatever methods you want to follow, and wherever you see yourself going, you know that you have someone by your side who believes in you, trusts you, wants to see you succeed, and always has an ear for you.  This is why love is important.

Now, we said we’d focus on romantic love, but we also said we’d help you find your love – and that means that we have to mention just one more type of love – love for yourself!  For you see, it is incredibly hard to find love without loving yourself first, and even harder to keep it.

Loving yourself and who you are means that when you do fall in love with someone, you will be doing so because of an attraction to the person, their traits, their beauty (inner and outer) and their personality, and not because you are using them to cover up your own insecurities.  Loving yourself means being less needy in a relationship and less demanding, leading to a much healthier relationship all around which is filled with even more – you guessed it – love.  So know why love is important, love yourself, and the rest, we promise, will fall in place.
