I DON’T NEED GUIDANCE, I NEED SPACE!
One day I was thinking how to describe the feeling inside of me, until one evening, while watching the film (Chef, 2014) it just came on its own, when the restaurant‘s chef emotionally said to the owner - ‘I DON’T NEED GUIDANCE, I NEED SPACE!’.
‘Exactly!’, I agreed out loud sitting in my bed.
‘That‘s exactly how I feel’, I turned to my second half while pressing pause on the remote.
‘I DON’T NEED GUIDANCE, I NEED SPACE!’, I wrote down in the ColorNote app, with an intention to write another short story, while the chef quit his job at the restaurant, bought a food trailer, and finally realized his creative potential.
This life is full of advisors and guides, starting with mom, dad, aunties, friends, even acquaintances, and long-distance friends and they all see life in a unique way (which is wonderful!), but none of them see it the way you do (even better!). And that‘s where the ‘guidance‘ comes in and needs to be changed into ‘space’.
If we‘re brave enough to fight for our personal space, without denying our craziest ideas and brave to live, miracles will happen. And most importantly they will happen one after another…
So if somebody is trying to get inside your head, get in their face and say - ‘I DON’T NEED GUIDANCE, I NEED SPACE!’.
Slamming the door is also recommended!!! :):):)
