We had a conversation in the morning. My partner said that she is not responsible for me, only for herself. It really hurt me, because my father left me and my family when I was a child, and this memory is a really big spike in my heart. I honestly think a parent has responsibility for his/her children. How to take care of them, what values give to them and try to create physical and financially secure for his/her kids.
And I think a partner has a responsibility for his/her loved ones. In my opinion, everyone is mostly responsible for themselves. But … and there is a but… But if she/he decides to share his or her life with someone then a common responsibility is created.
I am reading Jay Shetty: Think like a monk, and he said that we should learn how to detach things, and people from ourselves. Not because we don’t like them anymore, but rather because we could be stronger and have a stronger me-self. We should try to use our monk mind rather than our monkey mind. It sounds simple, but it requires deep self-knowledge.
“detachment is not that you own nothing, detachment is that nothing owns you.”
