Appreciation Vs. Affection

It's never a good idea to mix appreciation and affection.
To preserve respect, don't be loved too greatly.
Love takes more liberties than hatred.
Affection and veneration do not mix.
Be neither very feared nor very loved.
Love leads to familiarity, casts out esteem.
Therefore...
Be loved admiringly than affectionately.
I've realized indeed,
That there is a difference.

Mararamdaman mo rin yan doc pagkakaiba niyan pagdating ng panahon.... hehehe...

@AZEL

Affection is all mush. Mushy stuff. Empty cheezy state of mind. I'm not saying it's bad, i'm saying that it doesn't give too much weight on a certain situation or relationship...

Admiration on the other hand ia genuine appreciation of another being, not necessarily just liking the great and good... :)

ABsolutely. Madalas akong ma-test sa ganito.. I'm an appreciative person, or so i believe.. All people think differently.. Don't get too attached to any person or feelings. Be smart.

Oh well, what I'm trying to say is, kung di naman dapat o di naman kailangan eh bakit pa..Once you appreciate or show affection to someone dapat alam mo kahihinatnan..

It's good to express affection, just know your position to that certain person.. That's just it. Pointing,uhm...my point.. Wahaha!

Dre tagal kong absent ah...pinag-isip mo ako sa topic mo - affection n appreciation...as for me it goes hand in hand. Based on my personal experiences I can be appreciative with affection, however affection has certain degrees, brotherly, sisterly, etc...so for me it's impossible to appreciate without showing affection - probably unconsciously but still there is always affection...nice topic tc!
