Another example of how the Law of Detachment works is to examine your own life history and experience.
If you listed an inventory of when really good things happened to you (met someone very special, got a really good job, came into some money) you may become aware that they happened when you least expected them to happen.
There is no perfect person, no perfect relationship, job, house or city.
Letting go of the pursuit of perfection is practicing detachment, especially when dating.
Attachment happens when we try to control too much, when we force things to happen, when we manipulate (negatively), cajole, criticize or create drama.
