Although virtues are character traits of morality, unrequited love presents its victims with painful consequences, loss of identity and the development of negative habits. Over the long haul, love evolves into fear, passion becomes indifference, patience turns into frustration and forgiveness transforms itself into bitterness. These negative practices result in behavioral changes in the person that is withheld of love. Feelings of jealousy erupt in most individuals which ultimately lead to a losing battle because the victim tries too hard to be noticed by the other party. Arguably, a person that has experienced unrequited love loses themselves, their values and every other thing they stand for, in an attempt to love somebody else.
The miscommunication further develops people’s relationships divergent from the original intent of the actions, arousing disputes. In William Gibson’s play based on Helen Keller’s life, The Miracle Worker, the characters also struggle with similar relationship conflicts concerning the idea of visible love. The intense interactions between characters illustrate possible hostility, but in fact, convey one character’s sincere endearment to another with love mistakenly translated. In other words, when simply evaluating the exteriors, Gibson’s dramatic techniques portray the treatment of love as hatred, but when explored internally, it’s in-depth essence is revealed.
“If love is judged by its visible effects, it often looks more like hatred.” As stated in the quote, individuals tend to express their affection towards their beloved in rather aggressive manners, and thus the process of transferring one’s love to another often times are interpreted as hatred. However, this is only when love is judged to the extent of visible effects. The actions actually show an insight of their genuine love, but the clumsiness in expressing is what people mistakenly perceive as “loathing” and “detestation.” As a result, the relationship of people is developed in contrary to the original intent of the individual’s actions, creating disputes. In William Gibson’s play based on Helen Keller’s life, The Miracle Worker, the characters also struggle with similar relationship conflicts revolving around the idea of visible love throughout the story. The hostile interactions between characters in the play illustrate possible revulsions, but it actually contains one character’s sincere endearment, which was awkwardly expressed.

Although this is a hard concept to understand, this Love Talk helped me better understand how to control my emotions. An idea presented in the love talk that contrasts with how love is viewed in our society, is the concept of true love. Many people believe they are displaying true love when arguments happen because they are showing that they care for the other person. However, when they attack the other person for doing something wrong true love is no longer being displayed. I also believe that society’s views of love can lead to violence because society has created expectations and desires for what love is and how love should be displayed.
I might as be asking myself, what is the purpose of stating “I-Love-You” if you always need to perform your full responsibility on it? Do not get me wrong because as far as I know, some people do prefer to show their love by showing through their actions, and some people might as well prefer to show their love by saying these words but do nothing at all. In this case, I am all for “actions speak louder than words”. I can feel the annoyance of the author when he quoted this issue in his article. Personally, I view the words “I-Love-You” as demeaning and demanding if I have a future partner.
Many people regard it as being one of the most controversial poems. They have their reasons, and I respect their opinions. However, essentially it is an extended metaphor in which love and relationships are compared throughout to an onion. Yes, it may seem strange, but at least it is unlike typical Valentine’s Day poems. This one reflects a more realistic outlook of love and their relationships.

These are apparent especially in courtly love. Based on the excerpt, courtly love known as “a relationship that is build on the basis of the unexplained feelings that one has over a person.” Meanwhile, the darker side of courtly love is known as Libertine. Libertine uses romantic code to fulfill their needs and desires instead of gaining the ideal love. This can be seen in the phrase “They manipulate the romantic code and conduct not because to attain the ideal love but only for their own sheer personal delight.” The article is an excerpt from the book “The Road Less Travelled” which published on 1978 was written by Dr. M. Scott Peck who is a psychiatrist. Dr. Peck received his B.A.
Sometimes self-deception prevents people from dealing with big problems which results in emotional and physical harm (Truth About Deception). This includes abusive relationships, for example, when a partner is having an affair, or when a man is arguing, angry and hits his partner. Immediately afterward, he smothers her in compliments, apologizes, gives her flowers in order to remedy the action. She forgives him, even though this is chronic behavior. Because the abuse is complicated is continually suppressed, it is harder to acknowledge and leave the relationship.
