Non-attachment or detachment is hugely emphasized in Buddhist philosophy. Most suffering springs from clinging to transient things like objects, emotions, accomplishments, pleasurable experiences, relationships, and even our self-identity. Practicing detachment involves relating to all phenomena with more wisdom and less grasping. We can nurture detachment by reminding ourselves that everything changes. Whenever overwhelmed by grief, anger, FOMO, or craving, pause and bring awareness to that clinging mindset. See the underlying thirst for needing things to be static. This helps loosen the grip of attachment, allowing more flexibility and calm. Regular introspection also uncovers where self-worth gets tied to external factors, which can be unlearned. Ultimately, what you are attached to is not the material item or the outcome, but your sense of self, your ego, in relation to that thing. For example, you may feel like you have worth if you have a certain title at work, or believe you are lovable if your body looks a certain way. When you are attached to ego, you only see your world through the lens of your ego’s story. Try looking at your experience from many different perspectives. What is the perspective of your co-workers, your children, strangers, someone you disagree with, or even your pet? By allowing for multiple perspectives you expand your awareness beyond your ego and see there are multiple points of view, and that you can hold many differing points of view at once.
