attachment and love

“Try not to confuse “attachment” with “love“.  Attachment is about fear and dependency, and has more to do with love of self than love of another. Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because you are empty. It is about what you can give others because you are already full.” ~ Yasmin Moghed

  1. “Romantic love is all about attachment and emotional bonding. It’s all about our wired in need to have someone to depend on, a loved one who can offer reliable emotional connection and comfort”. Hold Me Tight by Dr Sue Johnson. The cult of calling attachment dependency rather than love is now scientifically discredited.


  2. More of a question than a comment. Can a relationship that is more of an attachment than love, become love over time? Can a relationship that begun as love become an attachment over time?
