The personal bubble
Sometimes I wish that I’ve never had any friends or relatives at the first place so that when I isolate myself in my own shell no one could ask about me. Space is needed for some people. That’s what everyone should understand and respect. Not everyone seek attention and like to be spotted in their every moment. That’s why having a watchman is optional. If you have the slightest uncertainty that you may gig or disturb someone’s serenity by asking about them, then simply do not. It doesn’t mean that you don’t care. It just means that you know that person too well that you don’t need to make out of yourself the clingy kind of person he doesn’t like. Whatsoever, being a good buddy doesn’t require asking constantly about the other person. All it takes is to grasp when you should be silenced and when you shouldn’t. So just be aware of the so-called “personal bubble” and don’t invade it.
