Love and trait

Not that it’s necessary, but between you and me, if I had to define love I’d say it was that protective instinct we feel for each other, our species and the whole living planet…

I think if people were left alone (no stories, no abuse) we’d all share this trait…

This protective instinct seems to carry in it the emotional attachment we have for each other… This would explain why we keep doing things to help people, in spite of what we know about “people”

I would like to come up with another name for it though… after a lifetime with people I can’t even say the word love without feeling a little gaggy
