Day 21: Privacy

Privacy is such an underrated concept. People don’t think twice before barging into rooms or even people’s lives. Often this invasion of privacy is not intentional but the definition of privacy is so vague and well, undefined that people don’t realise they are invading it.

Fully grown adults are mollycoddled by their parents and not allowed to make their own decisions. Maybe coz they weren’t allowed to do so, they do the same with their children, because they simply do not know otherwise.

Some people are knowingly nosy and do not realise when people might need their own space. Or they don’t enjoy their own company so the concept of alone time is alien to them. Nevertheless I think it’s high time the conversation on privacy and one’s personal space starts getting clearly defined.
