I Need Some Space
There are times when we all need space, to do whatever it is we need to do. It could be to think, write, practice, and plan or to just dream. Have you ever notice at times you are physically there in the room with someone, but mentally occupied? When we get that way it can be hard on those around us, who needs and expectations don’t change when ours do. The children feel abandoned and lovers feel threatened.
It may make it easier to get some space if we let our loved ones know that we will be back, that we need time to concentrate on something that may be important to us. If only they would lend a helping hand when we go into our space.
There is nothing wrong with putting up our Do Not Disturb signs; yet at the same time, we must also learn to respect that others need their space, too.
