    I can't sleep in light,

    I can't sleep near people, I can't sleep with obnoxious noise. Therefore I close the door.

    I just feel safer with it closed!

    I used to hate it closed; I felt like I had more access to my parents. But now, I feel like something could crawl or walk into my room. I also have a cat that could possibly walk or who knows do to me! Can anybody relate? 😕😐😶

    Close The Door

    Even though it's just my man and I in this house, I feel the need to close the bedroom door when we go to sleep.  I can't and I won't sleep with the door open, it feels weird. I hate it when he leaves the door open and then gets angry because I tell him to close it.  He's...

    I Can'T Stand It To Be Open...

    Maybe it's because I like my privacy, or I subconsciously feel safer with my door closed, but I can't stand it to be open, especially if I'm trying to sleep. I honestly don't remember the last time I tried to sleep with it open. Even if it's stuffy, I won't open it, unless I'm...

    I feel so exposed with my door open.

    Like what if a serial killer got into my house? Or an ever better thought, what if a ghost dragged me by the ankle across my bedroom and into the hallway? Ok I was kidding with the last part but I still feel slightly paranoid.

    Not Just My Bedroom

    Any room I'm in the door has to be shut. I like to shut out the world and be on my own. My bedroom is my own space and I don't like anyone to be able to enter it or invade it by looking into the room

    I don't sleep with the door open,

    I like it closed. I feel like I need privacy when I sleep. It's much more comfortable closed.

    I close my bedroom door

    Everyday and night, I like my privacy

    so I keep my door closed when I sleep. And of course for the fact that I live with several obnoxious people who don't care about their unnecessary loud noise when I'm sleeping.

    Shut my door, locked with high tech security

    system, placed a cupboard there and made sure that I have my weapons near me. Then I feel really safe and private from sudden barge of an individual waking me up from sleep

    I used to always sleep with it cracked open

    but now I sleep with the door closed and locked. It's not like I have to have it that way but I prefer it because it guarantees my total privacy.

    Well I used to only do this

    because I played on my phone for hours before sleep. So my parents think I'm asleep. Before though, I would always creep myself out looking at the dark hallway, imagining someone staring right back at me. It makes me feel safer and protected, I guess.

    Always

    I can't sleep if my door is open. I feel vulnerable. I don't usually close it all the way, though. I push it shut without latching it. Plus, I can hear too much outside of my room if it is open. Between my family, the dogs, and other noises in the house, it disrupts me.

    Door Closed

    i can't leave my door open because i feel like someone is there watching me or a stranger could come in even though it's only my family that's inside my house. i never sleep on top of my sheets for that very same reason.

    Exit Light, Enter Night

    When I eventually get to bed for the night, I close my bedroom door. I cannot sleep when there is a noise or when there is a light shining. There is almost always someone who is walking down the passage. Either that (on a night I sleep early, which is not often), or my mother is...

    I must have my door closed at all times.

    I just really love my privacy. Whether it's day or night, it has to be closed, especially at night, I can't sleep with my door open.

    Am I the only one who feels way to exposed with

    the door open? No? Excellent. I get paranoid with my door open. I watch way too much paranormal shows or my own good. Sometimes I would feel as if some is standing their watching me *shivers*. Not cool at all. With my door closed I feel safe and content.
