“Ah one more!” said Julia and pushed the empty bottle of wine in the middle of the night. It was too late to go out and get another one and have more. She screamed : “No more love, no more wine ,no more anything ,what is the point in living?”
Julia started to drink more and more every night which troubled her at work. She started to take drug ,too, following her resignation. Julia was an accountant before she lost love of her life in a car accident and became drug addict. Now she is under treatment to get back to her normal life .
Her case is maybe not the only one ; but surely the most remarkable one to see how important love is in our lives. What makes love so crucial ?Why do we all urge for love so much?
Neuroscientists explain it by the level of dopamine,a feel good neurotransmitter, in our brain which makes us feel happy when it is high.When we are in love ,dopamin level is high and we are happy. Drug use triggers the release of dopamin,too, reported Scientific American on its last month issue. If we put all these facts into account ,Julia’s case becomes clear. It sounds very dry and mechanical to say that she wanted the same level of dopamine which she had when she was in love before she lost her boyfriend in a car accident.Love is more complicated than that.Love is multi-dimensional. But what else could she have done not to be in this situation then?
We all know that life has no meaning until we give it one. No matter what meaning we give,they are all based on love. Love is the only and best drive we, human beings ,have in life. For an artist the meaning of life is his art. The more he works on it ,happier he is. For a mother ,her children are the meaning of life.She can do anything for them. For Julia ,the meaning of her life was her boyfriend,not her job,not her family,not her friends,not any hobby that she was passionate about . In other word her best drive was the love she had for her boyfriend.When she lost him,she lost the meaning her life.
However she could have had more love objects to give her life more than one meaning. She could have survived better if she had more than one thing in her life which she passionately loved .
