Passé Compose vs Imparfait


Why is “j’ai toujours eu une passion pour les etoiles” in the passé compose and not in the Imparfait?  Does not “toujours” indicate it is an on-going situation and therefore it would be in the imparfait?  I still have so much trouble with using these tenses correctly.

Thanks.
