That’s interesting! I’ve never thought of it that way… I’ve always felt that there are no limits to love. I suppose it’s because I have three children and I don’t feel I have to divide up a finite amount of love among them… there just always seems to be room for more love. And that applies to my love for other people too.

Mind you, when I was depressed I couldn’t really feel much love for people. I knew that I loved my family but I didn’t really *feel* love for them.

However, I know you were talking about intensity rather than love, and perhaps that’s different.
