It is always more pleasant to enjoy, in one way or another, the people you share space with frequently. These people can be as close to you as a partner, family, or close friends; or they can be as unknown to you as the person going into the same coffee shop every morning just as you are picking up your yogurt for breakfast, the person you pass on the path on your walks, or the dog you greet every evening, but don’t even exchange glances with his human. The degree to which you share space is not really even connected to the amount of time spent with that person, it has more to do with each person’s need or desire for a particular place, the state of mind of each person, and the deemed propriety of interaction in a specific space. Whether or not there is interaction between one another in a particular space, it is important to acknowledge each other’s right to be there and to be uninterrupted or engaged with at their preference as well as remembering that you, yourself, have the same right to exist in a space the way you choose to, as long as you recognize that respect runs two ways. Wouldn’t it be nice to occupy tranquil space most of the time?
