Love is something that most animals feel at least in some capacity. Most mammals as well as various kinds of birds, fish and other creatures feel maternal love which involves caring for one’s offspring and keeping them safe until they grow up and can take care of themselves. That said, there is a pretty good chance that human beings are arguably the only creatures in the world that feel romantic love, and suffice it to say that it can be a rather difficult thing to understand even though many scientists have been attempting to tackle it for quite some time now.
The truth of the situation is that romantic love often defies all odds and expectations, one really good example of this that we can think of has to do with people still loving their exes even though they broke up with them. You should know that if you wanted your ex back, you would definitely feel the love still existing within your heart, and the fact of the matter is that this means that you should try to get them back before you miss out on the chance to have them in your life in the future.
However, there’s also a small chance that you still love your ex because you are used to them. The feeling that some people call love can actually just be codependence, so take care to learn the difference between the two. If you picture happy moments with your ex, that might be what you are craving and you can get it from anyone else that you are compatible with. The best thing to do here is to be patient and avoid being hasty.
