Are We in Lust or in Love?

pexels-photo-867462I have come to the conclusion that in Lust and in Love are really two different states of being. Consenting adults can be in Lust without ever being in Love. However, the Love/Lust combo is a gift from the universe. It stems from more tangible feelings such as respect, compassion, caring, consideration, commitment and compatibility. The Love/Lust combo is a relationship that requires an investment of time and cultivation. By understanding the difference we gain perspective and insights into our needs, wants and desires. We acquire the tools to build solid relationships. It is just that simple.
