This is a misconception I myself have had that love holds one back from achieving his/her goals.
I always believed that being emotionally attached to a person-say your family members limits one in some way or the other.
But this turns out to be nothing more than a misconception. Love or affection can only throttle you to achieve better things. It has the power to change the person that you are for the better.
Thinking of it as a limitation is totally your problem. None of your loved ones want to limit you in any way.
Rather these are the people whom you could think of when you’ve fallen to get back up again and fight.
Being loved gives me a sense of belongingness. This makes me feel that there are people who’ll back me regardless of the situation.
Your goals are to be sought after by you not the ones who love you.
They can surely help you go through the difficulties you face along the way.
But it is you who’ll have to go after your dreams and the only thing that can limit you is your ownself.
