My friend and her guy broke up for about 9 months after dating for about 2 years. She was devastated and doing everything I was doing with my guy right now and I'm sure a lot of us were doing.. She was constantly contacting him, begging him to come back, being super negative, dwelling.. name it, she was doing it. Anyways after 6 months of going through so much hurt and pain, she finally realized one day that she didn't need her guy anymore, she didn't need him to make her happy and he was just holding her back. She finally gave her blessing to him (not in actual contact but in spirit) to be happy and that she wishes him well with whomever he chooses to be with. Then all of a sudden her guy was in contact with her. Saying how much he missed her and he's been miserable for the months they were apart but she ignored all of his messages because as much as he was saying all this, he made it still clear that he didn't want a relationship but missed her and so on.. She felt like she didn't need someone who wasn't sure of what they wanted and continue on with her life. She was truly happy and was finally moving forward.. her guy was still contacting her. She would say a few things here and there but nothing more than how her day was but most of the time would ignore him because he didn't want a relationship.. until something tragic happened in her personal life .. at first she didn't want to contact her guy.. but then one night he asked how her weekend was and she just told him everything. He instantly rushed to see her and after being there for her through this rough moment, he realized he wanted a relationship with her and they got back together. NOW, they are so happy together. A lot stronger than they have ever been. She said that she feels so detached with him even now in the sense if they were to break up again ( not that they would) she would be okay because this is the girl she is.. strong! She doesn't need someone to make her happy. She makes herself happy.
So this is my little story from a friend who doesn't know LoA but def detachment and just loving yourself and living your life is an important key to manifesting your desire. I know it's easier said than done.. trust me i know.. but I hope this helps
