Your brain on love. Trust it?

4:35:00 PM

Everywhere you go there's a book about it, ad nauseum, tons of TED talks and essays galore. We've read and watched it all. No matter what we hear, it never seems real until we experience it ourselves. The Brain on Love to me is a form of insanity, to a certain degree, because the things that you do when you are in love with someone would worry you when you're untouched with the disease.

Love is a beautiful thing, but one who has never experienced love can never understand the behavior of one who is in love. The brains chemical responses are all out of wack. Being in love can do a multitude of things to your body: it can make you euphoric, make your skin glow and keep you from normal things you need (sleep, food, etc.). Our behaviors change so much so that we forget who we were before we fell into it. 

It doesn't always last that long. The three month period beginning in a relationship is what is called the "honeymoon" phase. During this phase, the first kindling of emotions begin. The emotions consist of: lust, jealousy, love, etc. During this time, the person you're experiencing these emotions with becomes an object to fawn over and nothing seems able to be anything but perfection. Their smell, the taste of their skin and the little mannerisms may give you a sense of comfort and fill you with the feelings of love. This is the period to watch out for. Until your body begins to find equilibrium after these few months, you shouldn't completely trust those feelings. These are phantom feelings. 

Once the three month period is over, this is when you can truly know whether or not you are in love with this person or if it in fact was only a physical or lustful, false sense of love. 
Trust your heart, but in truth your brain is the one that's feeding you the love drug.
