We hold Love up as the embodiment of our principles and the manifestation of our beliefs. But Love is a complicated, funny thing: other languages have multiple terms for the various nuances while English has a single catch-all for anything and everything. Even still, our understanding of Love has been developed over time from a mix of less-inclusive perspectives than we often assume. Until we can overcome good intentions and other mentalities, our expression of love will always be toxic.
