If things go well, you try not to give up and achieve what you opted for, but sometimes circumstances are out of your control. Holding on to something unsuitable for you isn’t a smart move. Instead, it impairs your daily functioning and productivity.

Relationships and Attachments
Life is incomplete without relationships and attachments. It is a cycle of never letting go or giving it all up. Some experiences are cherishable, but a few teach ugly truths and show us the unsavory sides of people. The hurt and pain make us dizzy, yet it trains us to become well-fortified. We attach to people or belongings we love and care for. We gravitate toward people, ideas, hopes, and dreams. Attachment can become so strong that we lose sight of our goals and get blinded. We stop thinking clearly.
People often confuse relatability with attachment. Making someone a part of one’s life is establishing a connection with another person, which can be healthy. On the contrary, when we get attached, our thoughts and energy become disproportionally focused on that person, which hampers our perception. As soon as we become dependent on someone for our happiness, it entangles us. We give away the power of being happy on our own.
While attachment grows, fear also starts to cultivate. Being closer to your partner develops the fear of losing them, which can also be labeled the fear of detachment. We become obsessed, clingy, insecure, jealous, emotional, and even desperate to protect and secure our relationship. Hence, there are times when we get attached to a person but eventually lose them. Few hold onto it and never move on. Of course, it isn’t easy, but to move forward, you must let it go.
