Why do I lose myself when I fall in love?
Falling in love is such a beautiful thing and it is also a chemical thing. The research shows that when a person falls in love, 12 areas of the brain work together to release euphoria-inducing chemicals such as dopamine, oxytocin, adrenaline and vasopression.We can easily become emotionally swept up in the promise of merging ourselves and our lives with another. This is not losing ourselves it is perhaps temporarily losing sight of our selves which is quite different. The thing is that when we are able to remain connected to ourselves as we merge our selves (from our point of connection) with another, it feels more like a co creation and less like surrender. This is a wonderful way to share ourselves with another without it ever feeling like a loss.
