What is Love ? Perhaps it the investment we do in others in whatever way possible (emotional , physical , temporal and spatial ). That's why a connection get develops and strengthens as time passes by.
We all love positive emotions . There are various types of positive emotions ( Joy , Gratitude , Serenity , Hope ,Awe ,Pride etc etc. ). BUT Love is the emotion or feeling which encompasses all these +ve emotions.
I.e in love we feel all these +ve emotions at once, hence love creates greatest happiness. And due to this intensity of happiness love is superlative selfish act .
Cutting cord means devoid of this happiness. It will come with lots of -ve feelings that we don't want. In coming time only 1 or 2 +ve emotions we feel at a time rather than feeling them all as happens in love.
Hence cutting cord is weird.
I have also experienced it . But I found truth about relationships, love that seems good in every perspective. Hence I moved on . Feeling will be there ,but as Philosophy say "Knowledge and Knowledge alone will lead you to salvation/Liberation.", try understanding the core of all these .It will give peace of mind .
