Love: Flee, Fight or Surrender

I heard something interesting today. It was a statement regarding human responses to aggression. When faced with aggression, Human’s will flee, fight or surrender.

Immediately I thought this statement sounds a lot like how individuals respond to love.
Many people flee from love for various reasons (fear, vulnerability, past experiences, trust issues, ignorance, etc.).

There are people who fight to have love and other individuals fight against it. Often times love is accepted or rejected based on a person's knowledge. Definitions and perception of love decides how people will respond to it.

Finally, there are people who know the true value of love. These are people who experience great things because of their willingness to surrender to love. However, not every person who surrenders to love gives in to the real thing. Beware of those who cover malicious intent with an imitation garment of love.

Are you fleeing, fighting for/against, or surrendering to love?

Can you think of other things in your life that causes these three responses?
