Did you read that right? I said “breaks”, not “breakups”.
So, you and your partner argue, and then one of you decides that you need a break from your relationship and love life. It has been a week, and you do not talk to each other and act like strangers. As long as you do not intend to end it, realize that this is very normal. If you thought a break from your relationship is wrong, then I will tell you why breaks in relationships are good.
You may find that especially for first-time lovers, your partner requires too much of your attention that it becomes irritating. Again, you may focus too much on your relationship and lose focus in other matters of life. A break gives you freedom from all these.
It is common for people in relationships to develop second personalities due to the demands that come with relationships. This might see you living a life that is not yours. When you get a break, however, you have the chance to get back to your original self and restart life afresh.
Relationships can kill all the calmness in you. This not only points to the bad times: the good times, too, can wear you out. During the big break, you have some time to cool off from the norms and find some inner peace and calm.
At some point, though sadly, you might use this time to tell whether you and your partner are meant for each other. If the break takes away pain and much negativity with it, and if you do not have a reason to want them back, you may think of quitting.
Sometimes, you two may differ in opinions and end up with the break. Use this opportunity to think about the cause of the fallout. You may come up with a better idea of solving the dispute and in it save your relationship.
Relationship breaks are not so bad after all, or are they? Do not mistake them for the end of your love life but as times to rethink your future. We always welcome advice and extra information on our topics. Therefore, chip in whatever you think adds to our pool of knowledge. Regards!
