Word of the Day 01/26/18 Decathect

Decathect (verb)
decathect [dee-kuh-thekt]

verb (used with object)
1. to withdraw one's feelings of attachment from (a person, idea, or object), as in anticipation of a future loss: He decathected from her in order to cope with her impending death.

Origin: de- + cathect

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

[some of my thoughts in regards to a character of a tv show and it could be considered a spoiler?]This sort of reminds me of Danny Williams from Hawaii Five-0 and how he waits for the next bad thing to happen...and could why he hasn't told his 'girlfriend' he loves her despite being with her for at least 3 years now.
