George Vaillant, Harvard psychiatrist, directed a study from 1972 to 2004. He concluded: Love Is Really All That Matters: "It may seem obvious, but that doesn’t make it any less true: Love is key to a happy and fulfilling life. There are two pillars of happiness. One is love, the other is finding a way of coping with life that does not push love away. A man could have a successful career, money and good physical health, but without supportive, loving relationships, he wouldn't be happy."
It is up to me to find love, appreciate the love there is and let love come to me. It is up to me to find a way of coping with life that does not push love away. This gives me some peace to think on thoughts of love.
I know that love does not exist without trust. I have lost trust in my spouse because he puts no effort into his relationship with me, but that does not mean I have lost the capacity for love in my life.
