Distance engenders sadness; yet, it can also create a sense of mystic that’s much needed in any type of relationship. Being open to others about either who we are or what we are after is said to be the way; just like many things that sound good in theory but prove to be impractical in practice, being our authentic self in a distance-reduced confinement can bring about not only more disharmony than harmony at times, but it also can cause more personal friction and unforeseeable dramas between others, in particular those we love, and us.
No thicker walls can be erected to replace the needed distance that only space and time create. No amount of nooks and crannies in a confined enclosure can create a sense of mystic that only space and time can. Leave some space between others and us, because in the middle is where happiness and harmony reside.
