Something to Lose
Ted Gonder

Insightful post

Nice job, Ted — very thought provoking! One note: I think all types of attachment are not created equal, and therefore do not create meaning equally. In my view, one can be largely detached from materialistic things and have more meaning, whereas detachment from guiding principles would lead to an empty existence. As such, the broken down ferrari could very well lead to more meaning if replaced by more abstract attachment to thematic things like love, whereas the broken promise to a loved one could erode meaning.
