In an earlier post, we discussed how I defend the defenses of my defenses. I wondered how I came to this condition. It occurs to me that values may be at the heart of my defenses.
When I value something, I tend to protect it. I feel I can more easily let go of things I value less. I may not even notice things of no value.
In other words, for any given thing, its level of value to me determines my level of defense of it.
Value <=> Defense
