Passion is a positive obsession. Obsession is a negative passion. Well, thats what Paul Carvel says about the mental disease of obsession. It is healthy to be passionate about something in life. As passion makes you feel good. But obsession is detrimental for one’s mental health. It interferes with one’s normal balance of life and order. Being passionate about sports is fun and agility but being obsessed about how one is bad in playing basketball makes one a dullard.
Being passionate about one’s love is ecstasy but being obsessed about one’s love can hamper the relationship and drive the other person away.
At some point in our lives, everyone must have gone through some sort of obsession which excited them initially and later on overpowered them so much that they found it difficult to let go of that obsession.
