We’re taught from the day we’re born that we need to be attached to everything. We need to be attached to the people around us, to the things we have, and even sometimes to present situations.

Most importantly, and most painfully, we’re taught to be attached to the people we are in love with.

But attachment isn’t love. It’s a manifestation of objectifying another human being. It’s taking possession of them, and it’s not a terribly good way to enter into a romance with someone.

The end of the tracks? Anger, resentment, and regret.
