Episode 186: Have you ever found yourself attached to a person you were in a relationship with, even though you saw red flags and way too many warning signs? Ever felt attached to a particular job or a role in life that you felt recognized for? Have you ever been attached to a moment so much that you weren’t even present during it?

Attachment has the power to completely take us away from the present. It keeps us either in the past or the future, longing for things to be final or permanent. Connection, on the other hands, makes room for the unexpected. Connection is intimate, synced, vulnerable and present.

While you may not know this, connection and attachment are reflections of your self-worth. If you’re attached to everything, you may struggle with your valuing your own being, though if you allow room for connection and play, you feel your self-worth at a much higher level.

What do I mean by this? Listen to today’s podcast episode to get the inside scoop.
