Your personal space is worthy of defending from invasion.
Modern society is a highly intrusive culture, where too many people I know admit to using internet sites such as Facebook in order to poke their noses into the lives of their friends, family and associates. On the one hand people have a narcissistic delight of drawing attention to their own person, whilst many others seem to live through the lives of others.
The recent semi-final of Brazil and Germany at the World Cup drew world attention to a grief-stricken boy who witnessed the humiliating destruction of his team by Germany. The father of the boy reacted:
He also raised concerns about the intense media coverage his son was getting, saying that the boy’s weeping “belongs to himself only” – not to the world’s media. “What remains is a reflection on how a child’s sincere crying represents us all in an age of excess information, instantaneous emotions and artificial feelings.”
I define personal space as: body; personal information; home; mind; life; worldview; prosperity (health, happiness, abundance); dreams. The personal space being sacred is worthy of defending against anyone and anything that seeks to invade it.
The modern world has evolved into a monster that has no respect for personal space, which it invades and then seeks to violate for its own benefit at the expense of the individual. It is however the responsibility for the individuals to guard their personal space rather than the rulers, sadly most people no longer value their personal spaces nor that of others. I have strong personal boundaries to defend my personal space, and I also respect the spaces of others. I wish that more people would see how sacred personal space is.
