The near enemy of love is attachment. Attachment masquerades as love. It says, I will love this person because I need something from them, or I will love you if you love me back; I love you but only if you'll change and be the way I want. This isn't the fullness of love. Instead, there's attachment; there's clinging and fear. True love allows, honors, and appreciates. Attachment grasps, demands, needs, and aims to possess.
