When we become emotionally attached to a particular idea or belief, it can be very difficult to divest ourselves from that mindset.

I wish I could take credit for that original thought or quote it exactly as written, but I can’t. Nor can I give credit to the person who expressed it because it belongs to the vast sea of words that have floated past my eyes via social media. The only part I’m sure of is the overall meaning and the phrase “emotionally attached.” This is the element that has stayed with me in the weeks since, and it has burrowed into my awareness where it’s been simmering with various degrees of intensity.
