Free from attachment

The root of suffering is attachment, because attachment makes one bound. To be truly free means to learn to love and appreciate while remaining independent.

If I cannot keep myself free from attachment I am constantly experiencing suffering. Because I am attached, I am dependent on someone or something I have created a space for in my mind. When that person or object is criticized, neglected or not with me, I feel pain in my mind and I experience a sense of loss.
