Business Coach Essex “Detachment means letting go and non attachment means simply letting be.” ― Stephen Levin

It is said that people get over their parents death faster than parents get over their children’s death.

Psychologists think they know why.

It is because adults do not imaging their parents in their future dreams.

On the other hand, adults bring in their life partners and children in their future dreams.

So when a loss happens, it is not only a loss now, but the future is also shattered.

And that is why the pain lasts long.

The pain and disappointment is deep when the future is involved.

It hurts more when our imagined future is shattered.

That is why failure hurts.

Especially when we have invested a lot in the future outcome.

This is why it is so important to be detached from the outcome.

By all means keep making progress towards your goals but don’t invest your energy in specific outcome
