February — the month of love! Sometimes we forget that love isn’t only romantic, so this month let’s talk about four of the varieties of love as set out in C.S. Lewis’s book, The Four Loves.
This week? Storge, an empathy bond, aka familial affection. According to Wikipedia…
Storge is liking someone through the fondness of familiarity, family members or people who relate in familiar ways that have otherwise found themselves bonded by chance. An example is the natural love and affection of a parent for their child. It is described as the most natural, emotive, and widely diffused of loves… [Lewis] considered it responsible for 9⁄10ths of all solid and lasting human happiness…
What other bonds or relationships fit under the umbrella of storge love?
