Melissa Broder on love, longing and infatuation #happiness

Melissa Broder is the modern shaman/ philosopher/ poet. I’ve read her article for NY Times, and felt seen – most of what she says about love is what I’ve been recently realising/ discovering. In fact, her article triggered a reflection process that resulted in my ultimate post on love addiction – watch this space.

I bought and read Melissa’s new book Pisces (cover below) overnight. She writes about crushes, love addiction and how what we are longing for is not another person. Here are the quotes from the article that stuck with me, and my review of her book.

‘Crushes are like little treadmills of hope in the abyss.’

‘It is so easy to confuse spiritual longing with a craving for romantic love… Perhaps the longing itself is holy.’
