It’s healthy to maintain personal space. But if you isolate yourself too much, people will say you’re drifting. Here are ways you may be doing this without even realizing it:
You’re stressed out: When we have a lot on our minds, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by our thoughts, and we shut people out.
You’re too critical: Constant criticism can hurt people’s feelings and cause them to pull away.
You’re down in the dumps: You can’t seem to find the silver lining in anything. You feel hurt, and people can tell. People may not approach you because of the vibes you’re sending out.
The attention is on you: Arrogant behavior is a turn-off. If all you do is talk about yourself, you’re probably not even aware of how people are avoiding you.
