I need some space.......

Welcome back reader!


If you’re here once again, it seems to me that you must enjoy my writing and what to read some more;) Today’s topic is going to be about space. Not the one above us filled with planets, stars and perhaps even aliens from strange galaxies. I want to talk to you about personal space.


Personal space may mean for you, keeping the correct distance when talking to someone, or staying on topics that the other person won’t be offended by. For me, personal space is when I am alone with my thoughts. I don’t mean this in a bad way of course, I actually find myself at peace most of the time when I am left alone. I thoroughly enjoy the company of others such as my family and friends, but there are moments in the day when I much prefer the company of my own self. When this happens, I usually go up to my room and do whatever I feel like, read a book, listen to some music, write or sometimes take a nap. After I feel satisfied, I return back to socialising with ease. I like to describe it as if my “social battery” has been recharged.


Parents tend to think that when we spend our time alone that it is something to worry about. I am here to tell you it is not. Obviously if it is an excessive amount of time alone and the child has problems socialising with others, then yes it may be a problem. But if a child just disappears to their own space every once in a while, you have nothing to fear. For those who have siblings but their own room, going to that room is a way of escaping the chaos that siblings can be. There in one’s own room you can do what you want and how you want to, without having to listen to the whines and shouts of your siblings. I myself have two siblings and at times, my room is my safe haven where I don’t have to listen to them shouting. Other people may have different spots where they go to, to relax. It may not even be in their house but in a completely different area. I myself also have a spot like this if I ever need to leave my house to catch a breath.


What I am trying to explain to you reader, is that there is nothing wrong with taking some time for you. Every person needs a moment with their own selves before spending it with others. After all, if you yourself aren’t happy, how are you going to make others happy? So next time parents, if you see your child alone in their room or going for a walk by themselves, allow them to be by themselves if that is what they want. Perhaps even you yourself could use a bit of “alone” time…

You're so much like your mum! You have your dad's eyes. I remember your mum back in the day, you're a splitting image of her. You have the exact cheekiness as your dad! I could go on and on. No matter
