What is platonic love?
It can be understood as a long distance love. It’s that person that only observes another from a distance; the person never approaches the other, never gets involved.
Everything the person knows about the other is through observing in the distance along with heavy doses of fantasy and idealizations retrieved from books and romantic movies.
The other person becomes a perfect being, owner of all good qualities and completely flawless.
In other words… demonic love.
Let me show you with an example just how demonic this is. An actual fact.
A few years ago, a young lady fell in love with a boy she had never spoken to. She would always observe him from afar and inside of her she would create all sorts of illusions.
She would tell herself “I’m going to marry him!” She bought a wedding dress. She told her family that she was dating, all based on the idealizations she had in her head.
I don’t know how much she fantasized to get to the point of announcing to her family that she was going to get married. But surely, it wasn’t a little.
And that’s when she decided it was time to reveal all of those plans to a certain someone…
“I love Michael!” She said happily to her friend.
“Michael is engaged and is going to get married. Have you ever spoken to him? Did he ever give you some hope? Is there something going on between you guys?” Her friend asked completely surprised and worried.
She stared blankly and answered, “No, I’ve never spoken to him.” And she left.
The next day shocking news came to everyone.
After learning that Michael was engaged and going to get married the young lady went home and threw herself off her apartment balcony.
The hidden details of this platonic love were only uncovered after her death. Her family member had been planning to go to her wedding but now they were heading to her funeral.
It’s very said, isn’t it?
She was a good girl but she lived in another world inside of herself. A platonic world, only hers and the devil’s, who most certainly gave her a hand in constructing so many fantasies.
It was a great shock because no one could imagine such a thing. “How could this happen?” Was the question everyone asked.
I’ll tell you how.
That demonic love that everyone deems as inoffensive and romantic was the cause of all of this!
There are many young ladies in this same situation and they think that they don’t have a problem. What’s worse is that they continue to feed this feeling!
How about you, are you living a demonic love?
