Muri da Abbattere

Se due persone che erano estranee lasciano improvvisamente cadere la parete che le divideva, e si sentono vicine, unite, questo attimo di unione è una delle emozioni più eccitanti della vita.


Erich Fromm, L'arte di amare, 1956

Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.

Muchas personas son adictas a estar enamoradas. Terminan sus relaciones cuando la magia de haber conocido alguien nuevo desaparece; cuando empiezan a ver defectos en la otra persona y a darse cuenta que no es tan perfecta como pensaban. El verdadero amor no es ciego. Cuando amas a alguien puedes ver sus defectos, sus fallas y quieres ayudarle a superarlas. Al mismo tiempo esa persona ve tus propios defectos y los entiende. El amor verdadero está basado en la realidad. No en un sueño de encontrar a un príncipe azul o a una princesa encantada. Es encontrarse a una persona maravillosa, que no es perfecta y tu tampoco.
