Some people may not know the difference between love and lust. Here’s my interpretation; love is a deep feeling of emotion and affection you feel towards someone; it’s long lasting and goes deeper into your body, digs beneath the surface. Lust is more of a physical attraction, a sexual desire you fantasise about, which 90% of the time, doesn’t work out like it did in your head.
Do you believe in love at first sight? When it comes to material objects I believe you can love something as soon as you see it, but it isn’t the feeling of being in love; you wouldn’t take a bullet or risk your life for the pair of shoes or the leather jacket you saw in the store. I believe in lust at first sight. I believe you can see someone attractive and instantly be drawn to them, daydreaming about your lives together etc. but until you know that person, I don’t think love can come into it.
Temptation is all around us; whether it’s another person you feel you have a connection with in the office; or it’s that huge cream cake you keep eyeing up in the bakery that you walk past every morning, even though you’re on a diet; temptation is never going to go away. It’s how you handle the lust that determines how much of the love you feel; would giving into that lust be worth the loss of the love you may already have or could possibly sacrifice?
Love is love; whether its heterosexual, homosexual, pansexual, the list goes on; it doesn’t matter, we all have a heartbeat; we’re all capable of feeling deep emotions, and it’s experiencing those deep emotions that enables us to know the difference between love and lust. If you feel you can’t live without that person, you’re in love and like Winnie the Pooh said, “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
Until you love yourself truly and deeply, you won’t be capable of loving someone else wholly; when you have insecurities about yourself, they can then get reflected on to the other person. You might be jealous and insecure, which in turn, makes you think that the person you love is cheating on you or that their success makes you feel less worthy. If you’re really ready to love truly, madly, deeply, start with yourself. Experience true love at its best and save your lusting for the guilty crush you have on Gordon Ramsey.
They do come from one love; that love is within yourself.
