Emotional attachment vs. heart-connection

Emotional attachment is common. Heart-connection is rare. It takes courage to go beyond emotional attachment and open up to genuine heart-connection. I’ve been tormented by emotional attachments, but heart-connection has only brought me healing.

Too much emotional attachment is a barrier to heart-connection. It causes us to fear that we might be rejected if we open up.

True love is heart-connection, not emotional dependency. Heart-connection demonstrates that we belong. Emotional attachment makes us feel needy and question if we belong.

Emotional attachment tends toward dependency and control. Heart-connection produces caring and trust. Emotional attachment hides behind illusions. Heart-connection thrives with kind honesty.

Emotional attachment looks to people for happiness. Heart-connection interacts with openness and compassion. Emotional attachment can be one-sided. Heart-connection is mutual.

Emotional attachment is often a heavy burden, but heart connection continually flows with endearment. The warmth of heart-connection with people is liberating but being controlled by emotional attachment is bondage.

Emotional attachment is a form of dependency that leads to much hurt. Heart-connection releases much healing. Emotional attachment clings and manipulates. Heart-connection produces caring and trust.

Emotional attachment is based on deception. Heart-connection is built on openness. It reveals our human kinship. Emotional attachment is often painful, but heart-connection is soothing.

We can be emotionally attached to things, but we can only have heart-connection with people, pets, and God. Let go of damaging emotional attachments. Embrace refreshing heart-connection.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
