We all love love. We dream about it. We search for it.
So much of our happiness depends on our relationships with others — as a social species, we’re hard-wired for it. But sometimes, being in a secure relationship with a deeply loving and trusting partner is not enough. Love is not a magic pill, as much as we’d like to think it is. And even so, there’s only so much a pill can do.
Love will make you feel as light as a feather; it will make your heart swell up to the point of explosion; it will make everything shine a little brighter; it will inspire you. But it won’t do any of the actual work for you.
