    My coworker is like this. She’s the sweetest woman I’ve ever met, but oh my God she is extremely clingy/needy. She drives her poor husband (who is a great guy) over the wall and whines and nags us (her coworkers and friends) to death. I’ve told her, I said “you need a level of love that no human could ever possibly give you.” She acts confident, but there’s a hidden level of insecurity that she hasn’t realized that she has. Funny thing is that we’re polar opposites, I’m independent and kind of a loner, she’s needy and can’t stand being alone.

    I can meditate on this article, because it is just what I needed. I do believe that God aligns signs for us – it’s not always some supernatural thing, but a small thing like running across this article which has spoken to me and my current situation. I just had a break up and although I was hurt consistently throughout it, I wanted to keep it because it was familiar and I was attached. I knew that he didn’t bring out the best in me, I knew that we weren’t growing .. I pretty much knew that what we wanted out of life was vastly different. BUT I allowed him to convince me to stay. I’m about to reread this article. I even opened up the blog – thank you, universe!

    I’ve had these exact feelings before. Not really with my friendships because I like everyone to have a good time with everyone. I like making my friends, friends with everyone else. But when it comes to my relationships, I can be clingy. Don’t most? I don’t think it’s a bad thing until you forgot about you. Once you forget about you and your happiness then it becomes a problem because you are so self indulged with a person who may not feel the same way as you and then that can become dangerous.

    I think the way to love without being clingy is to simply have your own life. Do the things that you enjoy. Also, you have to build trust between you and your partner or friends. If these people leave, they are not meant to be in your life period.

    Hi Team!

    This is such an awesome and needed article. Quite recently infact, I realized that I like to possess relationships, friendships and things.

    And i am so relieved to have read this today because I acknowledged my behavior almost two days ago and have been working on it ever since.

    Everyday I am practicing something about myself and recently, I am practicing to love myself and with more passion than I do for others.

    There is a beautiful poem by Della Hicks Wilson that says “you can’t want someone else more badly than you want yourself” (I paraphrased).

    And that is a key component of healing from possession, is that you have to want yourself more.

    Continuing on this path of wanting myself more passionately and will love it thoroughly.

  6. Omg this article is everything!

    Wow this article just slapped me in the face. My bf once told me something along these lines but I ignored him and continued hanging on for dear life.

  12. Michelle says:

    Geez. This article spoke what was once me, holding on for dear life to everyone. I love the way you conveyed the ideas in this article. Also that lil description about yourself at the bottom… I had to do a double take because it’s the perfect description about me too..

    I feel the energy of this author, don’t know why. Sending you light and love GG. I pray the universe/ God meets you at your point of need.

    Michelle, I am not here to burst your bubble but I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you that New Age teachings and the Occult will get you in a world of trouble. Since you just read a book authored by a demon through a human being I want to suggest another book for you. “The Beautiful side of Evil” by Johanna Michaelsen. I hope you receive this comment with an open mind aND know that my comment stems from love and not condemnation or rebuke. God bless!!!

    I’m so happy that this article is on the main page again. I needed to reread it. I associate pain with attachment and i’ve learned that things that are out of my control do not deserve my energy. I’m learning to just be. I don’t need to minimize my love and who I am in order to prevent hurt now – i’m learning to just always give my best shot and not hold on to the outcome. I’m finally learning to just breathe – as ironic as that may sound. lol

    This is great information to have! I know there are a number of people that experience attachment and just feel they’re being clingy and cute. But people need to understand there is a difference and most importantly that one is healthy and one is not.
