Subjective Perspective and Objective Reality in MND. Help!

I am in english 102 and this play has been easy up to this point. I am writing on how love is subjective rather than objective. Helena states, “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind” (1.1.234), then there is the opening scene where Hermia's father is trying to make her love or at least marry Demetrius. Lastly the fairies put the flower juice on the lovers eyes to make them fall in love.
People want to control love instead of letting it take its course.
The topic is to discuss the relationship between a person's subjective perspective and objective reality.

I am just having a hard time explaining myself.
Any thoughts on this subject?
