I have always wondered that our attachment is not limited towards the material possessions we own. The issue is rooted on a much deeper level than that. The topic I am talking about over here is about our own attachments towards pain and grief, and how we always opt to stick to it. In simple words, this is what I call as our own ‘attachment to the negativity’.
What I am stating here, is the agony we carry, even when we move ahead in our lives. It is the same pain, which we have suffered somewhere back in the past, and instead of leaving it all behind, we actually nurture it till our very own death. We want to live with it, while having a vague belief in our mind that keeping such memories will help us in the future. On the contrary, quiet often we make a comfort zone, all made up of our past experiences.
The problem with this idea is that a person holding to one’s own past, develop a rather conflicted personality. Such a person never wishes to unleash his true potential and such a person’s judgment is based upon the negativity, to which one is fixated. That is when one feels like that his life is simply stuck.
