He doesn’t get attached because he simply learned that attachment is the root of all evil. It makes him cling to things he should release. It makes him chase people that are wrong for him. It makes him go after things that are probably not meant for him. It clouds him logic and his judgment because he’s holding on due to fear rather than conviction.
He doesn’t get attached because he learned that not everything is his to keep. He knows that there are blessings in letting go and in goodbyes and in releasing whatever was holding him back. He knows that the more he is attached to something and afraid of losing it, the more he will push it away because he’s only focused on receiving rather than giving.
He doesn’t get attached because he knows that people eventually leave. They don’t always mean what they say. They don’t always keep their promises. They don’t always come back. They don’t always love him forever, and even if they do, love is sometimes not enough to keep a relationship going. He knows that getting attached too soon will always end in disappointment. He knows that people change their minds overnight.
He doesn’t get attached anymore because he’s tired of people pulling away, people changing their minds, people leaving, and people not knowing what they want or what they’re seeking.
He doesn’t get attached anymore because he realized that one-sided attachment hurts. One-sided attachment always brings him pain. One-sided attachment makes him love himself a little less and makes him forget his own worth. He realized that when he gets attached he loses himself, and he vowed never to lose himself for anyone again.
He doesn’t get attached anymore because he’s learning to let go, he’s learning to move on, and he’s learning that it doesn’t always have to be his way. He’s learning that his heart is not always right and attraction can be blind. He’s slowly learning to detach from everything that makes him question himself or his love.
He doesn’t get attached, but he still knows how to love. He’s finally accepting that they’re not the same. He’s finally learning that if you really love someone, maybe releasing them is the ultimate expression of love—it means letting them be who they truly want to be or letting them be with the partner they’ve always wanted. He’s finally learning that if he’s meant to be with someone, they’ll both kind of attach to each other by default, like a magnet, without anyone pushing or pulling, without anyone detaching and without any need to control one another.
He doesn’t get attached anymore because he’s finally learning that everything is temporary and maybe the whole point of love is just to enjoy it while it lasts instead of trying to cling to it forever.
