#65 Detachment (Virtue of the Week)

Detachment is experiencing your feelings without allowing them to control you. It’s having the maturity to remove yourself from the emotional side of a situation so you can make well thought out decisions. Detachment is difficult to attain, but once you’ve got it, you can be confident that whichever path you choose will be guided by clear headed rational thought.

    hello there, i do so like your blogs and after reading a few this morning before getting stuck into my another day of dis-passionate work in order to pay the rent, i find i have something more of a positive approach.
    so thanks and go you!

    I just found your blog today, and I’ve been reading it loving much of what you’ve said. However, detachment? Really? I think if more people were less detached we would be better kinder people.

    I think emotional maturity could allow you to control your emotions to the point to not be driven by them without needing the take yourself out (emotionally) of the situation.

    Just my thought.

    You didn’t write the site that you copied the virtue thing off. I’m just wondering which site you got it off.
