The main difference between love and obsession is that love is a healthy emotion that occurs when two people are in a relationship. It entails strong feelings of affection. It is a strong feeling that we feel when someone is close to your heart. You can also feel love for animals, and they can feel love for you, and this is because there are all different types of love.

These include a mother’s love for her child, someone you are related to, it could also be a solid friendship with someone you feel a strong bond with, and of course, there is romantic love, which could be a man and woman, man and man, or woman and woman.

Obsession, on the other hand, is not healthy. It is more about the person possessing someone, rather than love. Obsession is a negative emotion that could potentially lead to violent behavior. Obsession could also be an unhealthy physical attraction to someone, and it can get out of control.

Love and obsession are two types of ways to display affection. The difference between them is that love is accepted, while obsession is not. Love is agreed upon between the two parties involved. Love could be a relationship between friends, a grandmother and her granddaughter, and between spouses. When two people are showing love with one another, it can be done through spending time together, gifts, and both people know that they have love with one another. Obsession is love that one party has, while the other person is rejecting it. An example of obsession is stalking someone or harassing them.
