This is a tough one. It is human nature to develop attachments to the people and things and circumstances that make us happy. But when we cling too tightly, we set ourselves up for disaster. After all, the only thing you can count on in life is change. Everything that has a beginning must have an end, and replacing your attachments with acceptance of that truth is crucial to a happy, tranquil life. There is an important difference between healthy love and unhealthy attachment. The line isn't a clear one – recognizing it can be a doozy, I know. But just sit with the idea. Plant it in the back of your mind and just leave it there. Over time, you will find that it has taken root, and that resisting the urge to form deep, unhealthy attachments gets easier every day.
