Are feelings subjective or objective? Can we pigeon hole our emotions? Do humans feel everything the same but we just think we experience them differently? These are the things I wonder.
Love for instance. I was thinking about a friend of mine and her relationship with her boyfriend. She scolded him for swearing at our work while he was waiting for her shift to end. She left to finish up for the day and I jokingly brought up the fact that he was scolded. He said –not verbatimly, “so what? All she can do is yell at me.”
I would never react that way to a scolding. It’s disrespectful and I think against the idea of love (because the two have to be intertwined). But is my concept of love the same? How can anyone but him know that he loves his girlfriend? Can actions actually speak for words?
