Women's love is a metaphor for fire. The tragedy of a woman's life is that she can't find a man. Proud men, because of the dichotomous extreme of their thinking, have become either midges burning in the fire of love, or narcissistic nocturnal predators, afraid of love as fire, in fear of losing their freedom. God needs a man, but where can you find one in the night forest?
When a man truly loves a woman, it kills the fear in him. In the absence of fear, a man acquires the ability to grow and expand. In the absence of fear, a man becomes courageous and joyful. A woman's empathy allows her to feel what a man feels, and this fills her soul with delight.
A proud lover who loves not reality, but his illusions, will constantly conflict and try to attract attention to himself, trying to control the object of his love. A real lover contemplates, gives gifts and is happy. The false lover tries to manipulate and extract pleasure. A fake lover reminds me very much of a drug addict who wants to gain control of his drug.
They do not believe in people, but in people, because initially a person may not have faith in himself. When there is no self-belief, a person is filled with lies and fear. However, if you believe in a person, then you can ignite their faith in themselves, and then the fear and lies will die, and the person will be able to perform a miracle.
In the absence of self-respect and lack of external recognition, a weak man will seek solace in vices, alcoholism, drug addiction... his character will begin to show aggression, self-love, resentment of the whole world, contempt for others, distrust of people, nihilism and criticism of life. In fact, all these features of the worldview are characteristic of pride and ignorance. To combat pride, you need self-restraint, fasting, work, reading, learning, and humility.
