    Hey psych2go, thank you for these amazing and calming videos, they have changed my life!

    I have actually fallen for someone, deep down I know it would work, but I don't know if I can make it or just move on. Would moving on without trying be a better choice? I would greatly appreciate your advice

    I have experienced love. I definitely agree with the mysteries of love because I find it fascinating. Especially when I get my heart broken, I did research one time and found out a hug that lasts 20 seconds helps when someone is sad, stressed and depressed after a heartbreak 💙 Thank you, I definitely learned more.

    This was beautiful.

    I have loved, and I still have the capacity to do so. Unfortunately, I have had the tendency to ignore red flags which has resulted in a lot of pain. But I’m still searching, still hoping, and still longing. As much turmoil as I have seen, maybe I’m reckless…… But I still believe that that beautiful thing that we know as “love“ is still out there, somewhere……

    Basically, I am a hopeless romantic. As far as the premise of the 5 Love languages stands, my top two are physical touch and quality time. Those moves substantially more to me than any form of material possession ever could. I absolutely love hugging, holding handss, sitting close together, kissing, long, deep conversations, and everything else along those lines. It is very saddening, however, as it seems that things such as that aren’t as significant to people as they may have been.

    Thank you so much for this one!

    I can confirm the art and writing one. before I met my girlfriend I was having big writer's block with my stories but once we became friends she gave me ideas and even helped me write ideas down. Now that we're dating, I'm getting ideas a lot. and with the painter side of it, I really like to draw and I've been getting ideas for drawings a lot now. I really do love her and she's helped me with so many things. Hope everyone is having an amazing day/night!

    I don’t believe in love anymore. It’s just an illusion that hurts you once it’s gone
