Been thinking about love lately, specifically as it relates to the idea of "impact always trumps intent." I could claim I'm acting or speaking out of love, but if my actions or words aren't received as love, well then they aren't actually loving are they.


@Rachael This makes me wonder about interpretation. If my natural expression of love is on a different channel than the receivers, could it still not be considered loving?

@jherb I think it could, for sure. Some people would probably be content to know that your intent was loving and either put up with it or adapt (for lack of a better word). Other times it might be such an incompatibility that it requires you to adapt. I think it probably also depends on the relationship and how important it is to each of you, because that will determine how much energy you're each willing to put in to make it work.
