    Do you believe love is an irresistible act? I've been running this K. Cole song "Heaven Sent" on repeat for the last few days, and the line were she says "when love won't let you walk away, and you can't help who you love." This line is really speakin to my heart. What's are your thoughts on it.

    shouldn't this be in another forum?

    that is a bunch of bull. you control your emotions, your emotions do not control you. that is the difference between a man and an animal.

    I think it's more about how you act on your emotions that differs us from animals

    a man controls his emotions. love is not a disease. you do not get infected involuntarily.

    love is a political decision.

    This would be nice

    I wish it WERE that way James. However, that fact is...the vast majority of people on this planet ARE controlled by their emotions. There are very few cases where people act (or react) strictly on the facts. Almost all decisions are shaped by a false sense of morality, fear, caution, or some variation of joy. If we (you included) could control our emotions without question, then anger, hate, greed, and selfishness would fall away and this world would be as it should be...in harmony.

    haahahahahaha
    Love is a power
    Love is not controllable
    The events that lead into are controllable
    for instance
    You can stop yourself from finding love
    You can stop yourself from feeling love(probably only for a while)
    You can stop yourself from seeing(only for a while)
    probably a few more
    But you CAN NOT stop yourself from "falling IN love"
    hmmmmm(getting my philosophy correct)
    I'll be back

    I wonder...

    I wonder why the line is running through your head? Is there someone you love and are denying it or running from it? Is the message asking you to re examine what you may truly feel and not just think is right?
    Just a suggestion, maybe it's a pull from your subconscious to look closer at a situation

    :idea:

    love is a political decision

    if you believe that, you lead your life as no more than a dog in heat. if your feelings and emotions control you, you are at an animal level.
    a man controls his emotions. a man takes responsibility for his behaviour.

    who you are open to is a very telling indicator of how your brain operates. if you go around saying "the devil made me do it" you take no responsibility for your own actions. that is a character issue.
