About this product
- DescriptionOne of the worst psychological ills that exist is emotional attachment. This type of dependency t only causes suffering and infidelity, but it also creates an obstacle to personal growth. Walter Riso demonstrates that attaching oneself to a person, object, activity, or sentiment in an obsessive or irrational way impedes obtaining a full and happy life. These pages invite us to leave behind what we do t need, that which imprisons and ties down our development, reducing the capacity we have to decide and act. Detaching oneself does t mean reuncing passions or goals, or demonstrating indifference to others. Contrarily, it deals with assuming a free existence, without encrypting individual wellbeing or the meaning of life in a specific aspect of reality.
