Duty vs. Love


Duty vs. Love

Leave it to Mother Teresa to break down the difference between doing something out of duty versus love. But if it's that simple, why do we find it so hard to separate the two? Why do we find ourselves doing a lot of things out of duty? Is the mountain of social and cultural programming we receive about women as caretakers to blame? Perhaps we don't need to understand it. All we need to do is ask ourselves why we're doing something. The answer is not in our heads but in our bodies -- it's in the muscle tightness, upset stomach or insomnia we experience. Our bodies never conceal the truth.
