The Objective Observer: Detachment as a Process

Detachment is a process that may assist to gain clarity, broaden perspectives, and make informed decisions.  By stepping back and adopting an observer’s mindset, we might view situations from a fresh perspective. Detachment allows for an objective assessment of a situation, to enhance effective decision-making and problem-solving.  Consider the following to uncover the potential of detachment:

  • Physically stepping back.
  • Widening one’s field of view.
  • Take deep, slower breaths.
  • Body Language: Lift the chin and relax the hands. This is opposed to the more defensive posture of chin down and hands raised.

A tense conversation could benefit from detachment. By consciously stepping back, individuals can observe the emotions of others and reframe disagreements. This could promote better communication and understanding.

Detachment can be a useful tool for improving decision-making and problem-solving abilities. By detaching from immediate circumstances, emotions, and personal biases, one might gain clarity, broaden perspectives, and make better-informed choices.  Of course, using best judgement, one should act to remove oneself from any situation considered to be dangerous due to possible physical harm.
