Of course I have cut all my cords of attachment to the characters in “Finding Nemo.” Joke. It’s the relationships with husband and son that have gained extra stabiity and sweetness, and why? It’s because I don’t lug around my one-time cords of attachment to them.
Cords of attachment aren’t like fingernails, often needing a trim.
Nor does each cord of attachment work like a lasso, waiting for some restless cowboy to fling it towards you during an idle moment.
There are good reasons, ample reasons, why Gladys cord of attachment to Joe will never return for the rest of her life. Nor will it or be replaced by a new, improved, more disgusting cord. Nor will any cord of attachment that has been properly cut ever grow back… perhaps like bedbugs after an unreliable fumigation.
