To Love or Be Loved, That is the Question
When people seek more love, they usually focus on becoming more lovable, and they usually do this by trying to become more attractive – by getting skinny and tan, wealth and prestige, stability, sense of humor, or whatever social currency they can drum up.
Erich Fromm summed it up nicely sixty years ago:
“Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved, rather than that of loving, of one’s capacity to love. Hence the problem to them is how to be loved, how to be lovable.
What most people in our culture mean by being loveable is essentially a mixture between being popular and having sex appeal.”
The fact that attractive, wealthy, famous people feel just as lonely as the rest of us proves that this formula does not work.
It’s incredible how little we’ve learned in half a century!!!
Nothing external ensures that you’ll be loved. The only guaranteed way to get more love in your life is to generate it yourself, and LOVE 110 will show you how.
You’ll learn dozens of Love Abilities and you can test yourself on the Sliders to find out where you shine and where you have room to improve :).
