I liked this video, but I'm not fully in agreement with it. Or rather this type of love, this selfless giving, is not a good foundation. Because what happens when you are abused or when injustice is done to you by someone you love? Relationships cannot be based on Ahava love alone. There must be mutual consent and there must be mutual compatibility. And you cannot reach that place until you have first loved yourself.
But once to people have chosen to commit to one another, Ahava is the type of love that makes the relationship last. Its the type of love that carries you through the hard times and makes the mundane moments a joy. It is a beautiful kind of love and it is foundational.
