Passion is an extremely strong emotion. You can feel it in your bones and it’s not easy to get rid of once it is there. It can be addicting at times, which is why people say that love can be just like a drug.
If you have ever experienced passionate love, you can’t deny its power.
It’s like your body, your thoughts, and your urges are no longer under your control. Your desire towards another person is so strong that they become your instinct.
Passion is both the best and the most dangerous feeling you can ever experience. Passion is like a burning flame- beautiful, irresistible and destructive. If it goes out of control, it can destroy you but it can also be the spark you need to experience true love.
In any case, getting into a passionate relationship is worth the risk.
What is ‘passionate love’?
Passionate love is one of the most powerful emotions that we can ever experience. It has the capacity to drive us into the experiences that we would have never taken before. It makes our heart beat and our mind to fog.
For this reason, I’m sure you can imagine just how powerful and even dangerous this kind of love can be. However, it’s often short-lived and dwindles down with the time until the love either fizzles out completely or it slows down into a long-burning love.
Why passionate love can be the strongest love of all…
With the passion being one of the strongest emotions a person can feel, and love being right up there with it, putting these two feelings together can make for one hell of an unbreakable pairing.
Your brain stops functioning
This is where your intoxication with another person get dangerous. Your passion can cloud your judgment and prevent you from seeing things clearly. You lose your sense of love.
You can end up in the hands of a man who is entirely wrong for you just because you feel that undeniable passion towards him. You can also easily mistake that passion for love and that’s where all the problems start.
You almost turn into a different person
Due to logical thinking portion of your brain taking a vacation when you fall in passionate love, you often behave like someone else completely. You begin saying and doing things that you normally wouldn’t do in a million years.
You live in the moment
You live here and now. For every moment that you will spend with that person who makes your blood race and your heart pound like crazy. Even if you are one of the people who like to plan ahead, who thinks things through when real passion kicks in, all you will think about is now. You will live for these moments of happiness that are putting you in this state of ecstasy.
You don’t make the best decisions
You can probably see how the above reasons could lead to your making some not so great decisions when you are with struck with passionate love. Since your brain has basically turned into mesh when you have so much passion running through veins, your decision-making skills aren’t exactly up to par.
You risk a lot more when you’re in passionate love
The dangers of passionate love really come to light when you start taking more risks with your new significant other. And this doesn’t just include marrying someone you barely know.
You could also forgo protection during sex and could end up having a child with someone, only to realize that the two of you could never work out. Unfortunately, this realization comes only after the passion has subsided.
It can completely change your perception of love
Some people have a hard time finding love. Because of this, they even go so far as to say that love doesn’t exist at all. But those people have probably never felt the full effects of passionate love.
After someone falls so passionately in love, they will have a completely different perception of what love truly is. They will start believing in love 100% because passion has that much power. Passion can make you understand love on a whole different level—one that you may not have even known existed.
Passionate love is powerful that can’t be tamed.
It can drag you down and it can lift you up in a matter of seconds. It’s usually beyond your control.
