From the very beginning of life, each one of us is shaped by close relationships with other human beings. Being loved teaches us how to love, how to imagine and feel for another person’s existence, how to share and cooperate. Love is attraction, connection and coherence it is a place to belong. Love shapes the giver as it affects the receiver, because it forms a union between the two. Love may in truth make the world go round – or at least hold it together.
