Can You Love Two People Equally?
Recently someone asked me who I loved more- My mom or my dad. This question is one I find interesting because it carries a belief that love can be quantified- that you can choose who you love more.
But I believe love cant be quantified, so I replied, I don’t love anyone more, I just love them differently. My love for mom stems from a place of admiration and friendship but my dad, it stems from a place of gratitude and appreciation.
So when I hear people say you can’t love two people at the same time, I smile, because you can! These two people bring out different parts of you and appeal to two different sides of you and this is where functionality comes in.
Which one is necessary at the moment. If it’s marriage- Who posses traits that you believe is needed for your marriage to excel. For example, you can choose to be with someone where you have intellectual debates because at the moment you seek mental and emotional growth Or you could decide that these intellectual debates could be gotten somewhere else, as you just want someone that shares the same upbringing as me. You want to be with someone where there’s a certain level of familiarity. That’s a choice, doesn’t mean you love one more. It just means at that moment you thinking of functionality.
I speak more about loving two people and functionality in this video.
Let me hear your views in the comment section! Do you think we can love two people at the same time?
