We learn to love our mother and love to other people because we never stop being weak and needy.
From my point of view who need love, love is the feeling we feel for who need: its origin is the love for our mother. It was with her that we learned to love because it was she who most need.
With time and the influence of culture, learn to be weak should be ashamed.
When we have between five and ten years, most children begin to be pressured to not be so dependent on adults and working hard, they begin to work with small tasks or at least not to provide jobs for adults ..., which is a form of collaboration.
Permission to be weak is lost gradually to be weak becomes embarrassing. So we started imagining disguise our eternal weakness powerful, invincible, full of courage. We have fun stories where someone who looks like us, (the hero), made great achievements, including adults saving the worst dangers.
But adults do not want to lose the love of children and love to anyone because it is certain that, at any age, we all need to be loved.
In other words, develop a feeling of love towards those who need one, especially my mom. This form of gratitude pleased and even would like to continue receiving it, even when we no longer need it because she taught us to do without it.
The confusion between past and present, this confusion that makes us long for what will never return, leads to still love her a lot but we do not need both.
We love others because they never stop being weak and needy.
