In this essay I will be giving my personal opinion on the topic: is it better to care deeply for something or remain emotionally detached?
Humans can get very emotionally attached to certain things such as their family, spouse, pet, and etc, but sometimes humans can become emotionally attached to an object or something that is not flesh and blood. I personally believe that becoming emotionally attached to an object or something that is not flesh and blood is wrong because the thing you care for the most is an object and you should not put your emotions on an object.
But caring for someone so deeply can also be a bad thing since you will not put anytime to anything else, a good balance of caring and emotional detachment is a good combo in my opinion. A personal example of this is my sister and I.
I am very close to my sister, she is my best friend and we care for eachother, even though I care for her a lot I still do not put all my time spending time with her, that would be bothersome for both her and myself, since we both want time to do other things and spend time with other people.
Another example of this is a married couple, a married couple though they love and care for one another they do not become obsessive with one another, and they give each other space, for good reason. Constant attachment can be quite restricting in a marriage and probably will end in a divorce if not fixed, no one likes someone that is too attached.
But being completely emotionally detached is a bad thing also because humans are meant to be caring not cold and unloving, without emotion(too much emotion is not good but some is). Balance is important.
So personally I believe that you should care for something but not so deeply that you won’t be able to do anything else in your life other than doing things with the person or thing that you care deeply for. But you should not be so emotionally detached that you won’t be able to care for anyone.
Caring for something and someone is something that humans do, but too much attachment or caring deeply for someone or complete emotional detachment, can be a harmful and a bad thing. A good balance of caring and emotional detachment is the way to go.
