Attachment to any single person, situation, or outcome is a great way to limit yourself

While it’s easy and comfortable to emotionally invest in people and things outside yourself, it’s a guaranteed way to railroad yourself either temporarily or permanently depending on your emotional fortitude. A disconnected approach can be unsettling, but ensures you’re not thwarted by the inevitable losses in life. One caveat to this is to not allow this state of mind to make your outward appearance or treatment of others cold. Detachment needn’t lack warmth, but rather, a consistent comfort with the self despite current circumstances.
