Ladder of human affection

Love

Passion

Friendship

Acquaintance

Indifference

In this ladder, you are actually capable of skipping one or another stair if you’re gifted with enough emotional agility and maturity. Climb it and then slide back down if some floor disappoints you.

But beware!

Once you reach that ultimate step, the love plateau, you lose your free will. And even if the view seems unpleasant from up there, you can never truly go back, you may only try to forget you reached it.

  1. “Once you reach that ultimate step, the love plateau, you lose your free will. And even if the view seems unpleasant from up there, you can never truly go back, you may only try to forget you reached it.” – I don’t think I agree with this, but this is still a good post. Made me think 🙂 Thanks for sharing your perspective.

  2. The ultimate definition of love for me is: Love is patient; love is kind. Love isn’t envious, doesn’t boast, brag, or strut about. There’s no arrogance in love; it’s never rude, crude, or indecent—it’s not self-absorbed. Love isn’t easily upset. Love doesn’t tally wrongs or celebrate injustice; but truth—yes, truth—is love’s delight! Love puts up with anything and everything that comes along; it trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what. Love will never become obsolete. 1Cor 13:4-5

    So based on this, to me love is a decision. A tough one. One has to make the hard choice to love someone even when they’ve done things to hurt us. One has to make the decision not to bring up the wrong things someone has committed against us, to put up with less than desirable things, to trust even when we’re given no reason to trust.

    Blessings.

  3. “Once you reach that ultimate step, the love plateau, you lose your free will.” – one strong statement. Thinking about it now, I wonder how many times I gave in because of love .
    Thank you for this post though 🙂
