Your world is like a space constructed of fabric. Your behavior affects that fabric and everything that happens within that space. All too often, people relate to others based upon there own inner world with no regard for how they are affecting the space itself.
To really understand how you impact other people, you need to understand how you are impacting that fabric. Are you tugging at it? Are you twisting or trying to tear it? Are you being overly attentive and paranoid about it? Or do you have a good, healthy, broad-minded understanding of the dynamic at play in the environment as a whole.
There is a lot of freedom here. You can play with the whole thing in a manner that is consistent with your own nature. It’s merely a matter of simultaneously being respectful of the environment and the people within it.
