“The soul needs more space than the body.” — Axel Munthe
Give me some space, Give me some space, Give me another chance, I wanna grow up once again. Today No matter whether Male or Female, younger or elder, old or child, poor or rich, leader or common man, everyone wants space. If they can’t get space, integration and struggle are born in the mind, some people fight to get this space, fight while some do not get space. They infiltrate and commit suicide. It means they give up. Or some accept the situation what is as it is and live life. What is this space? Space means peace of mind.
“Sometimes, a little bit of space is all you need to realize what you truly want.”
We really realize how important this space is. Giving space to each other means not only that we have to think of his space, but also that he should give us space from the next person, and there is nothing wrong with that. But sometimes because of so-called ‘me’, your / everyone’s ego/ego space, the feeling is so big that if he takes a step back and takes a step forward, everything can happen calmly and according to everyone’s mind and with our own happiness we can give happiness to others but not like that. It’s not possible because our egos come first. The role of space is just as important in creating self-existence.
No matter how close the relationship, everyone wants their own space. I have always wondered what space is. But as the crowd grew all around, I realized that I was not getting enough time. There is no communication with myself. It was as if something had escaped somewhere. But what is that exactly? Why do you sometimes feel lonely? When I think about it, I realize that we are afraid of loneliness but sometimes we want loneliness. “Sometimes we all need a little alone time. It doesn’t mean we are mad, upset, shy, or anything else. We just all need some space.” When you are alone and someone wants to talk to you or trying to communicate with you, at such a time it feels like you say to him/her, I am okay. “Please give me some space.”
Why this space? To calm your mind, to remove distractions, to communicate with yourself! Sometimes it suffocates in the loving people around us. Why all this? I don’t know. But the expectation is the same, those who feel close to you, they should understand you. This space is not always required (24 hours). In fact, this state of mind is only for a short time, but most of the time we don’t get that time or someone doesn’t give it to us. Just as time is of the essence when giving rhythm to the music, when painting, we do not paint the whole page, but keep a little space, white, so that the picture stands out.
Even when embroidering, knitting, or designing on a piece of cloth, some part of the cloth is left blank. That is why the beauty of that design is enhanced. That means a little space is important. Just don’t let this space become excessive. Otherwise, loneliness will increase. Space does not always have to be a bad thing; it can be comforting and bring relief.
