Only a rebuke that 'has something in it' will sting, will have the power to stir our feelings, not the other sort, as we know.
In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.
My daddy said, that the first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you try, that feeling just never goes away.

It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
Between Both Enough Even Feeling
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
