More On The Road Less Traveled
We are still on ‘The Road Less Traveled’ with Morgan Scott Peck, the American psychiatrist who authored the book that for many opened the door to ‘a new psychology of love, traditional values, and spiritual growth.’
In his work, Dr. Peck addresses the issue of dependency mistaken for love and offers the following.
‘When you require another individual for your survival, you are a parasite on that individual. There is no choice, no freedom involved in your relationship. It is a matter of necessity rather than love.’
‘Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live with each other.’
