affection is a feeling we may have for others or ourselves at times. it’s a feeling. it comes and goes. we won’t always feel warm and fuzzy towards others or ourselves, or situations.
love, though, compassion though – which i’d describe as embodied love in action – is a choice we make, it is an action we choose to engage in.
