Wait… they’re the same thing right? I don’t think so. I think of it like this. Passion for something, anything, takes time to develop. Years perhaps. I suppose passion could begin with emotion, but at some point, the emotion fades, and the purity of the passion rings true. Think of something in your life that you are passionate about. It’s going to be the kind of thing that permeates most every aspect of your being. It’s not a whim or a fleeting thought. It’s the kind of thing that will make you stand your ground.
Now, let’s think about emotion. Unlike passion, it can appear almost instantly. Sometimes without much warning at all. And if you think about it, ” When emotion goes up, intelligence goes down “. Don’t believe me? Have you ever been so angry that you’ve said or done something that you wish you could take back? Or have you ever been so happy and elated about something that you’ve done something detrimental to your health and wellbeing? You know, backflips, cartwheels, handsprings. Emotional moments tend to pass relatively quickly. At least they should once intelligence returns.
What say you?
