Attachment

We often use the phrase "attached to something or someone" to mean that we are or would be frightened to lose that in our life, indicating that attachment is something to avoid or that it indicates a problem.

 

I don't see being frightened of losing something to necessarily be a problem. In fact, it can often be a very good thing.

 

Attachment is when we understand and see clearly that it is important to have the willingness to choose courage to let go of something or risk that something may be taken from us, for example, that someone will leave us, in a way that diminishes our ability to live a life that serves us best.
