I Need "Personal Space"

don't stand so close to me! and stop reading over my shoulder! 428 People

    Just wish I could have a little bit of space on

    this GOD's cold piece of wold! So that I can at least be able to live the life that I see with my own eyes! But still living a dream and nothing strong enough in this world to stop it. ;/

    Very Important to Me!

    I have always been a "private" type person.  I need my own space.  When I was growing up I had to have alone time away from everything and everyone.  Now that I am an adult (where did all the time go???)   I still need it.  I need time out...

    Back the Heck Up Would Ya

    Why is personal space such foreign concept; why is it so hard to believe that not everyone wants to be so close to you they can smell what you've had for breakfast? Why is it people trying to have a conversation or attempting to be caring and understanding have the most problem...

    Is This Just Part Of Who I Am

    Once again I find that I have been drawn in to the emotional life of others and once again I become withdrawn and at odds with myself. Is this just something that I have to face every so often? Is this just part of who I am?   People seem to seek me out when they have a...

    I'm Very Protective of My Personal Space

    I don't like when it's invaded.  I hate when people come into my room, or even stand in certain sections of it.  It irritates the hell out of me, and at times I'll even tell them to move.  "You can't stand in that area.  It's mine.  Get out."...

    One Thing That I Absolutely Hate

    One thing that I really hate is when people in stores feel a need to stand RIGHT behind you, especially when you're in line. I also hate when they bump into you and don't say "sorry. Don't you realize that you're standing way too effing close to me?

    Stay Out of My Bubble!

    It drives me nuts when people come into my "personal space" who aren't invited in. Some people are allowed to cross the "barrier" but about 99% of people I want out and at a distance. It just makes me so incredibly uncomfortable. I hate it. I want them away...

    No Touching

    The best example of this was on Grey's Anatomy when Christina was hugged and instead of embracing the person she stood there cold yelling "ouch ouch ouch". LOL We all have our comfort zone and need a little space now and then. I'm all about communication but if I don't...

    I Can'T Focus When You'Re There

    I have this odd inability where if I'm trying to do something around people I feel much more stressed and feel an intense desire to leave or wish they would go away. For instance, my mother has complained frequently of how I'll wait until nobody else is in the kitchen before I...

    Stop Breathing My Air

    I don't like it when people stand too close to me when they talk. I work at a largely Hispanic school. How is this relevant, you ask? They have no concept of personal space. The staff members who are Hispanic are right up on you when they talk to you. The students are even...

    Uncomfortable With Physical Contact!
