Your personal sacred space include body, home and beliefs.
On my way to a meeting in Colchester a stranger shouted a greeting to me, I replied politely back, then they asked strange questions, which I ignored and walked on. The stranger aggressively shouted out to me to speak with him, accusing me of being arrogant. This encounter was an example of me asserting my personal boundaries.
We all have our personal space, our body, our beliefs, our home, our hopes and dreams. We are the master of our personal space, it is our choice if we choose to allow others into our personal space. By asserting our rights to our personal space we are often accused of being arrogant by parasitic people who wish to bust our boundaries to invade our personal space in order to misuse or abuse us.
In most world communities there are idiot men who harass women for the purposes of sex, and I saw two men doing this to women who passed them yesterday. One South Asian girl attracted one of these Eastern European men who walked up beside her, plainly disliked the attention. A family group of African-Caribbean people passed by, and these men shouted out “ebony!” in order to attract attention of a female in this group.
If we provide opportunity the parasites will abuse and misuse us. Our personal sacred space is part of our integrity, part of who we are. Our personal space contains our prosperity and dreams, we need to apply strong boundaries to protect this space, or face being violated and have it taken away from us.
I make no apologies by maintaining and aggressively protecting my personal boundaries, since if I am unable to respect myself, why should anyone else respect me? We are masters of our boundaries, and we say what enters our personal space. What others think or feel is irrelevant, especially if they are random strangers we never met. We take responsibility for our boundaries, personal space and choices, for nobody else will. As adults we are responsible if others abuse or misuse us, it is no point blaming others. We rise and fall based upon what we allow into our personal space.
