A short musing on the nature of attachment.
This blog is part dissemination of psychology and part philosophical musing on behaviour.
Our behaviour is not driven by an objective reality but by our history and perception of that reality.
To whit; if you try and change the world you will inevitably fail. Even those people who DO make big changes (think Zuckerburg and Facebook, Einstein and Nuclear Technology, Bill Gates and Microsoft etc…) inevitably fail to change everything.
Changing the world is pretty much impossible. Yet we are tricked and goaded into seeing ourselves as the essential cogs of a giant machine where we are absolutely unique and necessary for the world to survive.
You aren’t. We aren’t.
Let go of that burden. Stop trying to change the world. Just change yourself.
You’ll be happier.
