Is there any way to mend and reconcile?回覆刪除
Of course there is, but my point is that it is hard for the relationship to be restored to how it used to be.
Do you agree that love conquers all, including this problem? Love is the something that turns a person irrationally faithful in the other person and enormously forgiving. Perhaps it will also need a thorough and empathetic understanding of human nature that everyone is fallible and make (big) mistakes that hurt the other. But when it comes to "why do I have to forgive," love seems to be the only reason. A relationship of love, e.g. parent-child, is by nature (at least partially) irrational and therefore cost-benefit calculation simply is not applicable.回覆刪除
No, I don't believe that love conquers all. However, I do agree that the kind of problem I talked about would not arise as easily in the case of two people who are in a relationship of love.
