Do you think someone can learn how to love? Or is it an inherit trait and not able to be learned?

What do you think?

That is a pretty incredibly well thought out response! I definitely agree that some people are quite difficult to get on with, and you can’t make yourself love them. 

I guess I was wondering about someone who already loves you (or says they do) but tries to remain as emotionally uninvolved in the relationship as possible. Would that ever change? I suppose only if they redefined how they express their love, and became okay with exposing their hearts/becoming emotionally vulnerable.

But then, as you say (and I agree), love is purely an emotion. Can you truly love someone if you are holding back your emotions? Can you ever truly love someone ‘a little bit’?

i used to be so weirded out by the fact that everyone takes notes in pen in college because that seems so permanent right, what if you mess up a word, youll have to scribble it out and live with ugly notes

now that i write in pen i realize that i no longer have the strength of will to push down a pencil hard enough to make legible marks. im literally too dead inside to use a pencil. pen is the only way to make proof of my existence at this point 

Do you think someone can learn how to love? Or is it an inherit trait and not able to be learned?

What do you think?

"Mad was the last kid I saw and he was asleep. He was 3 months old and they put him in my arms and he stayed asleep and they put him in the bath and he stayed asleep and I thought he was narcoleptic or something. Then he opened his eyes and just stared at me for the longest time and I just stared at him and I started crying and he smiled. And it wasn’t that he smiled that he liked me, it was just that I hadn’t held children in my life and I was always considered so dark and I always had so many things that made me feel like maybe I shouldn’t be somebody’s mom because certainly the world has an opinion of me and I’m not so sure about myself and am I gonna be the best mom? So the fact that this little kid seemed at ease gave me the courage to feel like I could make him happy. And so we became a family right then." — Angelina Jolie

this is so beautiful
