Ever since I read this book, I can't help but to disagree with the "love" concept. So, naturally, I ignore that advice. I lived without much connection, save for necessary connection for my survival (food... well, I guess that's it). Been going on for almost a year.
I've no real world "friend", most of them are just acquaintances. This include my family as well. But, I always connect with "friends" from the internet. They led me to the wrong path (I don't think I want to discuss that), but they demonstrated to me the power of connection. I was actually more productive back then.
Now, I've disconnect with them, literally. Because my conscience suddenly emerged and recognized what I did was wrong.
Just want to say that.
