Passion


The origin of the word passion is derived from the Latin passed, and this in turn gives off the verb pati, patior (which means to suffer, suffer or tolerate). It is inferred then that this is a word that has a double meaning, and it is due to the fact that suffering and suffering always lead to pain; In addition, the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy defines it as “the opposite of action, or passive state in the subject”, which indicates resignation or conformity on the part of the subject, and also makes us understand that while we feel passion we are not capable of dominate the feeling which leads him to feel somehow dissatisfied for not having fulfilled something.

The other meaning that was mentioned above is when referring to a feeling of great intensity, expressed in another way, it is when an individual feels a strong emotion for some experience or for some situation they have experienced. Although it does not only occur due to a lived experience, passion is generally felt for another human being, it is a vehement and fiery desire that is experienced when feeling a deep attraction (mostly sexual) towards another person.

However, the human being is not only passionate about another subject, they can also feel passion for certain things or activities that they carry out in their daily lives, or that they experience for the first time, for example, reading can feel passion assuming that it is one of those people who read a book in their free time, or feel passionate about playing an instrument, writing a novel or a song, playing sports, etc. they are exciting activities, because the feelings that these activities arouse are somehow very vibrant and effusive.

In a way, passion is a feeling that in a certain way does not allow reasoning correctly at the moment it is experienced, that is when one speaks of not being able to dominate the feeling, one simply gets carried away by it, because one suffers a very strong emotional overflow and the person is capable of daring to make decisions on impulse. When the dazzle ends, the passion does too, and it is because it is not a rational event but precisely a passionate one.
