Understanding the Value of Your Personal Space

Hi my name is Ky, and I’m here to talk about the importance of understanding your personal space. Being comfortable in your own skin and taking a step back from the world around us can open up a place of peace that otherwise would not exist. I believe it’s necessary to set boundaries and take time to be alone with yourself in order to recharge, grow, and learn more about who YOU truly are.

Too Close for Comfort

I’m sure many of you VBRZ have experienced moments when another person was too close for comfort or even invaded your personal space without you wanting it. It’s important that those moments are addressed and taken seriously because having someone invade your physical or mental bubble of safety can be jarring and uncomfortable. Whether it’s at work or school, standing too close when talking or any sort of physical contact, we must recognize our own limits and know when something isn’t acceptable for us.

Respecting Another Person’s Boundaries

On the other hand, once we understand our own boundaries, we can be mindful enough to respect another person’s boundaries as well as give them their own space if needed. True understanding involves being conscious that not everyone may need or want the same amount of space as ourselves; therefore, accommodating each individual’s needs could go a long way in strengthening relationships with those around us.

Know How Much Space You Need

Furthermore, understanding how much personal space we need also allows us to practice self-care in ways best suited for our wellbeing. Self-care rituals come in various forms such as setting boundaries with people who are draining your energy or even just making time for yourself by practicing hobbies you enjoy doing alone like reading a book, writing in a journal, painting etc.. These rituals help allow us to stay grounded while allowing ourselves moments away from reality when needed.

Know What Works Best for Everyone Involved

With all this being said, I’d like to remind you all that knowing what works best for each individual is really important because sometimes giving ourselves permission to take some space is hard but absolutely necessary in order to refocus on what matters most: ourselves!
