wait, sorry, i'm a bit slow, but how can perseverance be warped into passiveness? perseverance is that you keep going and don't stop, mostly, but passiveness? is just passive?
Welp. One way of thinking of it is this: perseverance can mean sticking it out to the end regardless of what’s happening, and regardless of the outcome.
So it can be long term determination kinda. At it’s best it’s literally rolling with the punching, coming out on top and seeing something to the end regardless of the speed bumps thrown at you. It can be that strength that gets you through difficult things.
Or, at its worst, it can be going along with things regardless of what’s happening. A passive submission to circumstances. Where you are putting up with something without actively making steps to change those circumstances.
But both are extremes, and just some insight into my brain space. That being said, my word ain’t law, dude =U
