I would like to touch on the issue of privacy as I think it is one of the vital parts in one's life. Who doesn't need privacy? Even though we are living with other people in this world, there are things that we can't let others know especially something that we value as personal or sensitive. We need privacy when we feel that everybody is bothering and clinging around us at the wrong time and place. We need privacy when we found that everybody is talking about our personal matters. Other than that, we might also feel that our privacy is intruded if our private stuffs such as personal diary, text messages, or even letters in the PO box are being read by others without us knowing it at the first place. 

It's true that we can have as many friends as we want, we can share as many things as we want and we can go anywhere that we want. Simply said, we can do anything that we want = It's OUR lives. But have we ever thought that we are living on a planet with people around us? It's a simple thought yet it's quite difficult to interpret the meaning behind 'living with others'. When we are alone in this world, we can consider ourselves as having the greater privacy ever. No one will read our personal diary, no one will browse through our phones, no one will read our letters and no one will ever bother about us. But this is not happening in this world where we are living with others. Some of the people out there are not even concern about privacy issue. As for them, nothing is privacy in this world. 

So, what can we do to make sure that we can still have our own little privacy?

There are many reasons for a person to claim that his or her privacy as a serious matter. As for me, I think privacy is something that is controllableIf we think that our personal life is meant to be kept as private:

  • We should limit the amount of disclosure that we are going to share with others.

  • We also need to know who is the person that we can trust to share those private information so that our private life will not be revealed, exposed or even manipulated by others easily. 

  • We need to ensure that the medium of sharing those personal issues is highly trusted for its confidentiality. 

Being selective and secretive gives no harm to those who really want privacy in their lives.

The end. Thank you! =)
