Most people confuse love and lust and it is no surprise that some smart people have difficulties in discerning whether the approach of a boy or a girl is inspired by love or lust. It is given that the two phenomena activate similar neural pathways in the brain that are involved in view of the self, goal-directed behavior, happiness, reward, and addiction. But the questions here might be. What's the difference between, lust, infatuation, or love?
In most cases, relationships influenced by lust do no survive beyond the sexual connection.
The difference between the two is that love lasts longer however, despite lust is involved with passioned approaches sadly it doesn't last. Needless to say many people choose similar partners from relationship to relationship, but are unaware of it, as well as why these relationships continue to lead to disappointment and not last.
After all, love and lasts are similar but they differ. Profoundly always love causes longing and pain, and lust causes feverishness and frustration. Love again brings sacrifices yet lust brings violence. Again love liberates and sets you free, on the other hand, lust imprisons and destroys. Love is actually more balance in terms of addiction and mental awareness but lust is a high that can feel like an addiction and consume all your mental space.
“A person in love sees the world through the lens of love and everything and everything their partner does is delightful and tolerable,” says Kane, a marriage and family therapist.
Lust involves spending much of your time making lots of funs with your partner but having little interest in their life outside the bedroom with different values.
Dr. Daniel G. Amen an American psychiatrist argues that romantic love and infatuation are not so much of an emotion as they are motivational drives that are part of the brain's reward system.
Vanderbilt University sex researcher Laura Carpenter explains, "While people get older and busier, as a relationship proceeds they also get more skillful in and out of the bedroom,”
“Lust provides a rare window through which you can view your vulnerabilities as you are swept away by your imagination. And if you are able to face and endure the shame and disappointment that are often the outcome of such attraction and subsequent disconnection, you will have ample opportunity to learn about yourself,” Mary C. Lamia Ph.D.professor at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California, a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst stated.
