We need relationships, family, affection, trust and companionship to give us a purpose.
We need interpersonal relationships, affection, intimacy, trust and companionship. While love is always hard to define, it includes a strong desire to fulfill the needs of others. Financial planning often is motivated by our love for our life partners, children, family members and friends.
Although love becomes different later in life, both physically and emotionally, the need to interact and bond with others never ends. In fact, studies show that the positive emotions of intimate and social relationships play a critical role in healthy aging.
Love is at the core our motivation, resilience, self-esteem and physical and mental health.
