Passion -vs- Compassion Do You Know the Difference?

Defining “love” has always been somewhat of a mystery, and changes like the seasons. “

Passionate love is one of the most powerful emotions that we can experience. It has the ability to drive us into experiences that we would have never taken otherwise.

It often causes our heart and our mind to fog to the point of intoxication.

 It is helpful to logically understand what passionate love is and how to manage this most uncontrollable emotion.

Compassionate love, on the other hand, may not be as wild as passionate love.  Hence, it is more of a secure love which builds over time.

This type of love provides you the security that the relationship will surpass the trials through consistency, repetition, and tolerance.

The common misconception most people make is they assume “passionate love” should be the driving force in a lasting relationship–unfortunately, no high lasts forever.

Keep in mind, passion can provide a jump-start to a relationship or a sense of pizzazz during a relationship, but it can never sustain the relationship forever.

Love should be the friendship that has grown over time, which is unyielding and stood the test of time.”

The key to a sound relationship is a combination of passion and compassion, mutual respect, communication, acceptance, and intimacy.
