THE “WHAT WHY & HOW” OF DETACHMENT

From The Virtues Project Educator’s Guide

WHAT IS DETACHMENT?

Detachment is experiencing your feelings without allowing your feelings to control you. It is choosing how you will act in a situation rather than just reacting. With detachment you are free to do only what you choose to do. Detachment is using thinking and feeling together, so you can make smart choices.

WHY PRACTICE DETACHMENT?

People never know what to expect from someone who is not detached. Without detachment, you just react and let your feelings control you. Anger can pop out without warning. With detachment you don’t have to react. You can decide what you are going to do. Detachment brings self-confidence. It helps you be moderate. It helps you to be your best self.

HOW DO YOU PRACTICE DETACHMENT?

Detachment helps you to decide how you are going to act, even if you have very strong feelings. It is like going to a calm, peaceful place within your mind and looking at what is happening without getting swept away. Whenever you have a strong feeling about something or someone, stop and ask yourself “What am I feeling?” and “What do I really want to do?” Take time out when you need it. Look. Choose. Act.
