Well put. I try to remind my lovers and myself, everyone is always yours, until they’re not. And you’re right — this idea may seem cynical but it actually it makes your love more mindful and present. I hold them in my arms and remember, no matter how much I’d like to lay here forever — I can’t.
My ex was a Sikh and with her being gone now, I guess it’s kind of ironic that she taught me one of the main tenets of their religion is non attachment. My parents’ religion taught faith. Which is same idea because how can you be dependent on an outcome? You can’t, you have to believe that you’ll still be okay, thus faith — non attachment, because… everything is temporary. Thanks again for the reminder.
