Day 19 of Blogvember. A full list of prompts for the month is available.

Love is a super-complicated topic. I know I love my wife, I love my kids. But truth be told, I don’t know how I know that I love them.

I know that I love, in a technical sense. Yet I only feel it rarely. To be fair, I do occasionally experience an overwhelming sense of affection that pulls at my insides. This is probably the truest expression of love. But I don’t get that often. Is that a standard, everyday feeling for others? Am I missing what other people experience?

I wonder if others have a clearer understanding of what love is, or how it feels. Perhaps I’m missing out on the feeling of emotional love. It’s like my rational side gets in the way of my emotional side.

Heavy stuff. A bit too daunting to think more deeply about at this point.
