Numerous ideas and concepts of love exist from Greeks philosophers among other sources of history. Definitions of various categories attempt to clarify love matters to help differentiate between an Agape Godly Love, or family Storge love, Philos friendship and Eros sexual lust desire. These boundaries at times are complicated as society tries to box each love aspect specifically in one category.

When you or loved ones doubt self worth or self value due to any set of unfortunate circumstances of life that experience does not define you in GOD’S Eyes. Taking time out to let any person know their Priceless whole value, in God’s Sight is necessary. Some people who disbelieve feel God hardly knows they exist let alone care or love them. Often it the simplest of reassurances of God’s Love that can make them to feel worthy as hard for some people to accept Agape Unconditional Love.

In the wonderful love seasonal happenings during Valentines Day love is brought to the forefront to think more about God Kind of love of God and one another. So necessary to study the Agape GREATEST LOVE from GOD in Christ by Holy Spirit. Added to God type of love is joy.To further explain Godly love entails self love in Christ. A believer’s life is hidden in CHRIST so no longer your own but the temple of God. This means constantly in 24/7 hours to keep asking approval in line with Christ before choice decisions made. Society prides itself on enforced socialisation, so seems personal touch of individual life is deliberately conditioned so self eroded for a sense of belonging. It therefore puts pressure to please, to feel accepted, to belong, to be affirmed and it takes over personal growth. As it is then assumed by trying to fit in, people learn to adjust to relate. On the other hand the dominant person in a group just bosses everyone around. The favourite ones get along but those considered least in group develop rejection complex. So begin to seek other friends or coerced to accept their assigned place and adapt to please. This pattern continues throughout until building confidence becomes major issue because often not taught how to define self first before taking responsibility of pleasing friends, loved ones, colleagues, mates or acquiantances. This also festers silently in subconscious mind behind the scenes so wondering why those feelings exist in anyway. This resurfaces during teenage years, peer pressure to comform developmental stages of discovering self more aware of self value relating to God.Phileo feelings of belonging, and being loved, sharing mutual respect makes all people feel good. Looking for affirmation is taken to whole new level as constantly seeking affirmation. Focussing on others for approval first before feeling human can be distracting personal develpment. Concept of interaction to build character influences behaviour and creates a social hierarchy. Children identify with strong ones dominating others so they thrive or shrink inside. Here individual attention means teaching the valuing self worth in relation to God then appreciating others. This is so true as a foundation necessary to protect people to some extent. People become affirmation conscious too early in life so do not realise builds self worth on projected image of others. So creates mimicking rather than wholesome focus on personal development in parallelism to peer interaction. Wholeness helps to be confident to love others also without blaming them for not being made happy by them. In reality nobody can make one happy as much as the Happy God Can. So confidence in God brings the joy people look for in other outward approval areas not the inward approval of God’s Spirit at work in them. If not dealt with such feelings can generate sense of misplaced loyalty. So look for love and affection in wrong places than believing and trusting God for true love in Christ.Sterigio platonic friendship relationship is the kind of of genuine closeness of a sincere brotherly or sisterly love for any person not blood family.
