I'm correcting this habit...this tendency to fold into myself when someone is beside me. On the bus, I choose the three-seater for more space. I'm a big girl, and very aware that I take up a lot of space. Even if I was first on the seat, soon as someone sits beside me I slouch and make room for them. I noticed that, more often than not, people assert their presence: "I am here, make room for me." I understand now that it's an unconscious trait, much like mine. I've been practicing now, asserting my presence, my space.
