Trying to find some clues as to the usefulness of shame in love, I came across this <a href=”http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/in-the-name-love/200911/shame-and-love”>article</a&gt;, “In the Name of Love” by philosopher Aaron Ben Zeev, that quite frankly did not help me at all. Maybe I am missing the point, not reading well. I did find some portions of the article interesting but I did not understand much more than shame and love are both powerful emotions that can either build or destroy. Am I missing something? Does this article clarify the relationship between love and shame? It’s short, so feel free to read and comment, educate me.
