It’s okay to need time and space. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong, or that we don’t enjoy the people in our lives.
In order to achieve a state of yoga, one must develop both practice and detachment.
—Yoga Sutra I.12
When we detach, creating space, it’s simply that we need to re-align with ourselves, whether by reading, practicing yoga, dancing, appreciating nature or meditating, to better be able to embrace the world.
