Everyone needs their personal space. They have also their precious border. But being so preoccupied we tend to forget it. We happily invade their border and we don’t even know that.
Let’s analyze a few such incidents. We go on an outing as a family, after coming back, we all will occupy the couch, won’t move an inch enjoying the rest time, except her. I don’t understand how she has that much energy left in her to make a quick dinner.
While getting ready to go somewhere, at the last minute, I needed an important thing. I kept on searching for a long time making the room messy. She comes as my savior and finds it in a minute but I don’t thank her, I even get angry at her for keeping it somewhere safe and leave. Ironically Even I don’t know where did I keep my things.
We get ice-creams for all, I have finished my favorite ice cream, she gave me her share also saying, she doesn’t like. I never wondered was it always like that or just because it was my favorite.
She doesn’t buy a dress for her birthday saying she has much dress. But she gets one for me when it’s not even my birthday and even when I have loads of new dress already. I never had given it second thoughts.
When I am having a slight cold, I get to rest In peace, thinking my mom is there. But even in high fever she stays active and does her regular chores. I never stopped and told her to rest.
I was so happy comfortable in my extended border, enjoying freedom, unaware of the fact that she is reducing her personal space to put my priorities over her until I took her hand and made her walk into my border to make both of us have an equal border. Give freedom to others, it’s never late to realize how much you were taking theirs. Really her(My mom) freedom ends where mine begins.
