Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path
No one ever wants their life to be thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of people keep that threat under their own control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded.
Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all of their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric (intensely happy or confident) because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything.
Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it - which of these two attitudes is the least destructive?
I dont know.
