    How to use "Cutting off" in context?

    When cutting something off, be it a limb or an engagement ring, there is a sense of finality that comes with it. To sever something connects us to what is being cut off and in doing so, helps to create a boundary that keeps us safe. For example, severing a limb from a human body removes a potential threat, and in the same way, breaking up a relationship can be healing for both parties.
