And I feel like I need to say, I don’t agree with my INTJ’s conclusion that joy and love are a choice… I am unsure on that. However, I loved his explanation on how people choose someone and how it’s like joy – once you have, little things can’t change it.
I am not so sure you can just say, “I’m going to be joyful. Or I’m going to be loving.” But yes, I get that joy lasts through unfortunate situations, and that love as in the Bible does too. I hadn’t thought of it that way before.
