Funny thing about infatuation. An individual never really knows the extent of it until an expectation is not met. When the object of the infatuation is not in step with the anticipations of the infatuated, watch out. When this disruption occurs the full impact of secret and unexpressed affections cause what can be described as an emotional cave in. This occurrence causes an imbalance which demands action. The action taken can bring a return to equilibrium or further imbalance.
Then you get a good night sleep and forget it ever happened.
What is most important to understand is the difference between infatuation and true love.
We are all continually infatuated with so many things and so many people so much of the time. The saving grace of this condition is the ability through Jesus to transform our infatuations into true Love!
