To detach is the phrase used by psychologists to describe the desire to get away from the world that you live in and to be somewhere else psychologically speaking. If you detach yourself from a situation or your mind is easily detachable, it gives you the ability to take no responsibility for your actions, it gives you the ability to have the emotional depth of the kiddies’ side of the pool, and it gives you the opportunity to just stop caring.
While these things all might seem like amazing feats, awesome displays of human cunning and ability, being able to detach is not usually thought of as a very human characteristic. In fact, the more detachable someone is, the more sociopathic they are on the scale of what determines a sociopath. There are times when a person needs to be naturally detachable from hardship, but if there is never any realization or acceptance that something terrible did occur then there is never any learning nor is there any healing occurring either. You never get hurt, but you also never accept anything and it eventually leads to your entire grasp on reality losing focus.
Detaching is something that is done as a defense mechanism but it is not a power and should never be treated as such. You will lose your humanity in the process of detaching, not to mention your friends and loved ones, and all of the people that really care about you. You can do it when it needs to be done, but to have a dream where you are detachable suggests that you are dangerously close to enacting this ability to detach just a little too much. You can’t let this happen to you or things will become terrible for you one way or the other.
Dreaming that you are detachable is a pretty thinly veiled interpretation of an emotion which should be pretty obvious. Basically, you feel a little bit boxed in. You know that you have been feeling a little left out of the loop lately. Your emotions have been strongly attached to others and the way that they feel. You haven’t been able to go out and be your own person; your life is too wrapped up in the lives and experiences of your close friends and family. If you have a dream in which you are some kind of detachable component or something like that, it means that you need to try a little bit harder to go out on your own, this is what you are requesting from yourself, whether you are willing to admit it or not. This is what is going on and this is how you are going to get ahead in life. You need to detach yourselves from others at some points and make sure that you are living life for you. Having the support of friends is healthy but being able to support yourself is just as healthy and necessary to living a well rounded life.
