At times you simply leave things to people’s interpretation as you realise
that there are some burning issues to attend to. So to say, they cannot wait.
Perhaps they are long competing for your urgent attention. They rightfully
take precedence over any misunderstanding that may so arise as a result of
your apparent apathy. So you simply let things be the way it is. Not that you
don’t care but at least for the moment you do not wish to upset or add to the
mess. Maybe there ain’t any other reason for your so-called detachment.
Currently the best resolution you can offer is your thought-out distance.
