Wanting Space & Not Feeling Guilty

Space is something that is important for each and every one of us no matter our age but there are times when we feel guilty about wanting that space because what if it comes across as not wanting to spend time with those we care about or love or it might seem we are just being grouchy and will they be able to cope without us for a few hours..... I think these are our perceptions.

Firstly we need space for many reasons such as:

down time
creative time
re energize
re connect with yourself

Sound familiar?

Space allows us to close a door and to go within our soul to a place where we can relax, be ourself, think quietly, slow down our pace, solve problems etc so why the guilt? perhaps our other half might feel left out or the kids want our attention, friends need someone to off load on, the housework needs to be done and so the list goes on and our excuses.

Truth of the matter is everyone is entitled to space and daily life just has to make a space and fit you in, family & friends can wait an hour or have this time as their own space.  So when you next need your space allow yourself to feel the benefit of what comes with spending quality time with you and don't feel guilty about replenishing energies, keeping yourself sane during a hectic day, being at one with your soul after all you do deserve it.
