Love is a powerful emotion that can build or destroy civilizations. It can sweep rational thought out of our mind. Love, like other emotions, changes over time. "First love" is heady passion. "Young love" is about admiration and friendship. As years roll by, love develops into a secure emotional bond.

Heartbreak & Grief
