My Why: Let's be love

Update: 2023-02-14


Do you need a bit of love and hope this Valentine's Day?  Wondering what love is and where to find it? Want to hear why it's better to define our lives by love, and not loss? 

Welcome to another My Why from me, Claire Sandys, co-host of The Silent Why podcast. My Why episodes are audio shorts of my latest blog post. If you'd prefer to read it, you can find it here:

As this episode goes out on Valentine's Day, a tricky day for some, I wanted to offer anyone feeling a bit fed up a boost of hope and some podcast love.

We often focus on one type of love, especially on Valentine's Day, romantic love (or eros), but there are many types, and this episode explores why it's so important to remember the other forms that love can take.

You might say: 'What's love got to do with it? Where is the love? I wanna know what love is.'
And I will answer 'This crazy little thing called love? Love is all around us. Love is in the air. A groovy kind of love. Endless love. I believe in a thing called love. Can you feel the love tonight?'
And you will say: 'You give love a bad name!'

There's no escaping love, it's in our culture, our literature, our art, our music. People have been obsessed with it for years. Tune in to find out why it's so important, and how it might just help you, not hurt you, this Valentine's Day.
