In the last post I said that once you let your attachment to something override your ability to question a premise or perform critical thinking – all learning, progress and growth stop. Attachments can also hurt you in other ways. Let’s explore the issue…
Believe it or not, millions of people get “attached” to a role they play in life, and make it a permanent reality. This could include roles like being Sam’s wife, the class clown, or even the guy with all the cool sports cars. (I wouldn’t know anything about that last one!)
One of the most frequent examples of this you’ll see are the people who become “professional” victims.
Unfortunately, there can be a lot of rewards and payback for being a victim.
As a result of all this, millions of people have actually become attached to the "role" of being a perpetual victim.
These people are easily recognized by the clues they give you. Which we’ll look at on the next post…
In the meantime, please share any thoughts below you have on the subject.
