Is Love A Feelings Or An Emotion?

Love Isn't An Emotion?


Love can sometimes feel like emotion but in the right sense of it Love can not be considered an emotion but rather a feeling. Emotions are things that you can express with your face, something that can easily be felt by others without you having to talk about them. Thing that can be easily notice on the face such as anger, hunger, sadness, disgust and surprise, things like this can be felt on the facial expression of the people expressing it so it can be called emotion.

When someone is hungry you can easily see the expression on their face as all they will think and want is food and the emotion can’t be hidden. Love can also be classified as a goal and you might go through so many emotional traumas in order to prove and make the person see what they mean to you but that does not mean it’s an emotion but the feelings attached to it makes it seem like an emotion.

Every emotion has a cause, when love is unhealthy, emotion arises when you have something to be worried about, your emotion rises when it is needed. If your emotions rise again and again while you are in love then something is wrong with your relationship, relationships shouldn’t have so many crisis and it start having crisis then you start getting emotional feelings. Emotions often rises when you feel sad or heartbroken. Feelings is what you experience when you are true and happy relationship.

Love shouldn’t decrease or increase regarding the situation of it environment, love is not an emotion and it shouldn’t be considered one, true love is a feeling on it own. Love is stable and it doesn’t get affected by emotions, when we feel attracted by someone and we yarn for their attention then it’s not an emotion but feelings on it own.

Having being in need to send someone an emotional goodbye quotes can be classified as emotion because they wont be a need to send a particular person goodbye messages if you are not feeling hurt or sad, that can be considered an emotion.

Emotion often relate with things that make you sad or an unexpected thing which touches the heart and reflect on the face. When the face expresses something unpleasant then it is an emotion.

Imagine someone who is very angry in front of you, all you will be seeing in their face is that annoyance and trust me you will know from their expression at the moment they are not emotionally stable. When we are truly in love we experience a flowing mood and intense emotion.

Love can not be considered as being afraid, you only get emotion in your love when you are probably scared of losing your partner.

True love doesn’t play game with other people soul and it doesn’t depend on what you can project onto your partner, real love doesn’t hurt you but it’s a deadness promise and ones your love give you joy then it is more a feelings and not an emotion. You only experience emotion when your love hurt you more than they make you happy.
