Attachments breed a certain kind of desperation, and it’s a process that permanently taints you. Once you’re fully attached to someone, you each give and give until your souls start to merge and you lose all sense of boundaries. And that in itself is incredible. But what happens when it’s time to detach?
That’s why it’s so hard to move on. Because once you do decide to try, the separation process becomes destructive. How do you know which part belongs to you? How do you figure out where you end and they begin? It’s painful because even if by some miracle you do detach. You don’t realise which parts you still have missing, until you think about giving them to someone else.
