Difference between healthy love and sick love
In the first place, healthy love is the feeling of fulfillment you have when being with someone who complements you because he values you as you are , reinforces you, and does not want you to change. In the same way, it gives you freedom, it helps you grow in all areas of your life, you can complete this relationship with other friendship ties with other people and you can continue to enjoy various social circles.
On the other hand, sick love is one that becomes an obsession. It is more based on conflict than happy moments. Behind an insane love, the idea of love with a criterion of belonging is also highly developed. From this perspective, jealousy is also justified for those who think that it is impossible to love without being jealous at certain times.
Nothing is further from the truth, this type of myths all it does is promote an insane idea of emotional ties. For this reason, love is not belonging, simply because nobody is a property. Therefore, there is also individual freedom to break a bond that is not rewarding.
When you have fallen into the nets of an insane love, then your whole world becomes complicated. You have more worries at work, less quality of life, more anger with your family … On the other hand, when you have a pleasant love on an emotional level, your whole life flows more naturally. In love of these characteristics, there are fewer mood swings and less intensity in emotions. But, happiness is also palpable in simplicity.
