We are often confused when it comes to understanding whether our feeling is that of love or attachment, isn’t it? While a lot of us think that love is complicated, the reality is that love is one of the simplest emotions and the most precious gift to mankind.
Here are few pointers based on my personal understanding of these emotions:
Love is acceptance. Attachment is expecting to change other person.
When you love someone, you accept them with their strengths as well as weaknesses, without judging them. You encourage each other to be the best version of yourself without feeling the need to control one another. In case of attachment, you keep nagging other person to change so that you feel good about them.
Love is fearless. Attachment is insecure.
When you are in love, you fear nothing, not even separation. Love is when you can let go of someone and his/her name can only bring a smile on your face. Attachment is when you are afraid to lose someone and you can’t think of letting go of him/her and looking back only hurts/angers you.
Love is calm. Attachment is storm.
Love feeds your soul. Attachment feeds your body/mind/ego.
They say, when “I” is replaced by “We”, even ‘illness’ turns into ‘wellness’. Love touches those parts of you which are not visible to your eyes or your sense of touch. It stays with you forever, for love is eternal. On the other hand, attachment proves your feelings are temporary and dry down once they stop serving the purpose of your body/mind/ego.
If you have not yet experienced love, I wish you receive this wonderful gift soon in your life. If you have mostly got attached, I hope you get to experience something higher and deeper as early as possible 🙂 🙂
