2. Liberated or controlled
We believe that love is liberating. On the other hand, attachment is controlling. Mutually loving people allow each other to be their true selves. If you are loved, you will be encouraged by your partner to be who and what you really are. Attachment makes the couple to control each other. Sooner or later it brings discomfort and people realize that they coexist in an unhealthy bond. Accept your partner and feel accepted by your significant one – this is one of the differences between attachment and true love.
