Possessiveness bothers me mostly. Because this is fundamentally a fear of loss.
Finally when I got a blow from one of my possessions, my eyes opened. I have mentioned that through my posts: “My journey through books.”
As such now, I am in the path of practicing “Renunciation”. Not very easy. Also not very difficult, once you have higher knowledge of your own Identity. Real Identity.
The Consequences of Possessiveness:
Jealousy: Possessiveness often involves the fear of losing what we have or not getting what we want.
Attachment: Possessiveness creates a strong attachment to things or people that we perceive as ours. This attachment can lead to dependence, obsession, and emotional pain when we are separated or threatened by them. This happens mostly in Relationship possessiveness.
Conflict: Possessiveness can lead to conflicts with others who have different or conflicting interests, beliefs, or values.
Therefore, I am of the opinion, that possessiveness is a great cause of bothering.
