In this episode of Defiant Health, I’d like to talk about how the intensity of love, affection, and other emotions and social interactions have lost intensity. The love of today, I’m going to argue, is less involved, less intense, less soul-wrenching, involving more superficial commitment than it used. If we could compare the love and affection of, say, 50, 100, 1000 years ago, I am going to illustrate how our current version of these emotions is an anemic, watered-down version. And, along with this change, I’m going to propose that many of the social phenomena that we are all familiar with—-divorce, social isolation, loss of community, increasing suicide—-are all related.
The good news: I believe that you can fix this broken part of the human experience, both for yourself and for the people around you.
