We've all heard the song. I want you to want me... I need you to need me... I'd love you to love me... I'm begging you to beg me... The song by Gary Jules, though somewhat forgotten in its age, is timeless for, at least, one reason: So many people can relate.
I've heard so many people ask this question, and it drives me crazy; "What does sex have to do with being in love?" The two have become separate. I'll admit, just because the sex is fantastic, it doesn't mean that you're in love or the relationship is fantastic, that's true. However, how could we get to the point where we can seriously ask how the two fit together at all?
You know how it goes...when you first started your sex life out, it was fun, magical, and there was always something new that made your head spin. But life happens. Whether it's work, kids, a "headache," or boredom, sex can get mundane after a while. We lose that "teenage lust" that we all once had. We find ourselves so caught up on the to-do list of the day that we forget to appreciate and admire our partners sometimes. I'm not saying we should all act like teenagers and go at it like rabbits in mating season, but I do have a few tips on gaining some of that lust back.
Schizophrenia is many things, depending on how you look at it. Neuroscientists and others who study the brain see a phenomenon. This illness has no known cause. They see an illness that eats away at the brain and causes unusual, potentially dangerous behavior. For those who don't know anyone with this disease or much about it, they think of it as a mental illness and nothing more, something that only affects the sufferer. For those who know a little more, it is seen as a "zombie" disease that eats the brain and makes people crazy.
My mother was a wonderful, bubbly, and vibrant person. She always knew how to make me smile and feel special. She did everything perfectly. I always told myself that if I could just be half the mother that she was, my kids would be lucky. But, she's gone.
It's the age-old, timeless question: What is love? This is a difficult question to answer, not because it's an emotion, but because everyone experience's it differently. I have gone around and asked many people and have noticed some similarities, however, so I'd like to attempt to answer this question using my own, and some other's experiences and the similarities included.
