Nice to meet you, they whispered lovingly

Love is a pattern that has been taught to us through our education. We further tend to stick to and reproduce it in its original form throughout future encounters and relationships. What happens when this pattern originally or at some point gets devious/deviant or even pathological? How to cope with the reproduction of behaviours? How to get rid of the very instinctive, primal, almost animal schemas that ensue from such? Are we then doomed to desperate calls for love? How can we remain intact if love is an arbitrated contract with one’s past?
