Desire is present in every person. We are born with many desires and as we age, the lesser we have. Some we let go while some we hold on until we die.
However, desire is the cause why we suffer. So some religious groups try to renounce it while some live their lives without it at all.
It’s been said that a desire which is unfulfilled will haunt you forever. So you have to fulfill it so later in life, it wouldn’t be so hard to let it go. But what if your desire can never be fulfilled for whatever reason it may be. That’s where you must learn to let it go and realize you can live without it.
