Sometimes in a relationship, couples decide to take a break. One of our viewers was asking, «What does taking a break exactly mean?
Answering this question, taking a break could be a way to separate, heal, and become better individually without ending the relationship.
Relationships are built on agreements, and it’s important for both parties to be on the same page and understand the same meaning. If someone doesn’t agree with the terms set, they have the right to step back and distance themselves from the situation. If the other person isn’t listening to you or ignoring you, it’s an indicator that you might be in a place where you’re not being valued and respected.
When taking space, one side of the couple may be enjoying their free time while leaving the other person in a state of uncertainty. First and foremost, ask yourself if that’s really what you want and if you’re willing to live in a state of uncertainty. If you choose to stay in that situation, it’s likely to happen again in the future, which is why you should decide what kind of relationship you want to have in your life.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, I advise you to first work on yourself, uncover your wounds, and build a new version of yourself instead of expending energy on toxic relationships.
