One's personal space is an important part of his/hers life, I believe. Even though we usually live with those who love, we still need our bubble in which we can be alone with ourselves., can be alone with our dreams, thoughts, plans, fantasies, loves and minds.
Sometimes in couples and families is forgotten that the other's need for private space and this creates tension in their relations. A personality is complex, so in order to fulfill his/herself one needs to have be able to spread wings.
That is why I always try to keep this healthy distance even from those, close to me. Sometimes I really want to get into their head, to know it all, to see it all, but I realize that this is selfish and it would hurt them. It is just unhealthy. That is why I keep out, I don't ask about all and mostly try not to judge. I believe that is not our place to say what is right an wrong in some else's life, even a beloved one.
All of this can be easily seen if one observes him/herself. For example, I really wouldn't like if some was telling me all the time that I was wrong or that the books I read weren't good, or the people I meet are not for me, or to be interrupted when having a shower. .
This goes for our professional life, too. Yes, it is good to get help, but if I am working this I maybe know what I am doing?
A person's space is a sacred and I believe that we should all think if we are treating our close ones in the same matter we would like be treated.
