"Motions of the Mind"/ "The spirit that moves us"
Welcome to the February 2023 Raffle Event! There will be three winners for this blog-based event, and the deadline is February 28th, 2023
Did you know there are different types of love? Share a scenario when your character experienced one of the following:
🤍 Eros- [EH-rows]: The romantic love shared between lovers. It is passionate, sensual, and attractive on both a physical and mental level. The word "erotic" is derived from the word "eros."
🤍 Philia- [FEE-lee-uh]: The ancient Greek word for "affection," and the chosen love of friendship. Philia is the love shared between friends. It is comforting, familiar and has a different degree of intimacy than the Eros form of love.
🤍 Storge- [STOR-ghay]: The love that a parent or guardian has for their child/children. Storge love is described as the most natural form of love. It is safe, nurturing, and familial.
🤍 Agapē- [ah-GAH-pee]: A benevolent love and desire for good will towards another. It is often described as the type of love a god has for their creation, and the love a person has for nature or those less fortunate. It is a protective love that does not depend on filiation in order to be shown. It upholds the "Love thy neighbor" morals.
🤍 Lost Love: All things must come to an end. Has your character ever tragically lost a lover?
🤍 The one that got away: Did your character have a love interest that simply did not work out? Was your character the one that got away?
