Pure love for another person, and what people call romantic love, are two different things. Pure love doesn’t manipulate the relationship to one’s advantage, but romantic love is different. Romantic love contains other elements—the desire to be loved by the other person, for instance. If purely loving another was enough, you wouldn’t suffer because of unrequited love. As long as the other person was happy, there wouldn’t be any need to suffer because you weren’t being loved in return. What makes people suffer is the desire to be loved by another person. So I decided that romantic love and pure love for a person are not the same. And that by following this you could lessen the pain of unrequited love.

So this is an actual technique used by some specialized therapist.What they do is hypnotize a person, and the person experiences a series of flashbacks of who they were in their past lives. It does work, and it definitly does help people figure out who they really are. For example, someone who has been afraid of the ocean for their entire life figured out they were drowned in their past life. Someone who felt hurt and neglected by an ex-wife, found that in another life he was her father and abandoned her. It was part of a karmic balance.
If you have a burning question as to what’s going on in your life and why it’s happening, you should try it out. It definitly can help. Find a therapist near you who does this ! Google is your best friend.
By (noun) In our list of interesting words, lalochezia is the state of emotional relief one achieves from using vulgar language. This satisfying feeling accompanied with the act of telling someone to f—k off is a great stress relief. If somebody accuses you of having a potty mouth, counteract their unimaginative insult by explaining that copious amounts of lalochezia is helping you from punching them in the face. A little humor and intelligence always goes a long way. (via wordsnquotes)
