I let go my need for attachment and reside in my desire to love.
I do not cling; I surrender
I am not compulsive; I am free
Love and fear cannot co-exist, and unhealthy attachment is a compulsion or need that arises from fear. Love is a state of connectedness that requires vulnerability and surrender; fear promotes insecurity and inner isolation. Love promotes interdependence within a shared safe space; unhealthy attachment never feels safe for very long and thrives off of a kind of co-dependent wrapping-around another and their life. Love expands the individual and the heart; attachment diminishes both. When insecurity arises within the framework of a and it always will- love faces it promptly and then takes whatever action is necessary to relinquish it, but like fertilizer in a garden of viny, thorny weeds, needy attachment thrives on insecurity and is supported by it. Love exists in a state of present presence; attachment is always mindful of the pains of the yesterday and fearing the imagined pains of tomorrow. Attachment is a compulsive need; love is free to want.
