How so profound! Love in reality is not just a word, not being acted out, not a look, but what is in the heart. For there it is kept safe in that little treasure house, only to be unlocked by that special person that has the key..
You are absolutely right. Unfortunately disfunctional families, sects, and some mothers and fathers with mental problems couldn't give children the love and care they needed. As a result of that there are many people with mental and physical and other personal problems and sometimes that continus for generations in certain families. Therefor healing, psychotherapy, psycho analysis and other therapies and cure methods were developped to deal with the trauma lack of love, coldness and emptyness did to people who grew up in heartless, cold families without love. Next to physical and sexual abuse (incest) you have mental abuse and neglect.
