Will A Relationship Break Fix Everything For You?
Have you ever considered going on a relationship break before? When you have been dating someone for years, it’s possible that things aren’t as perfect as you would have hoped them to be. A lot of couples go through this but are unsure whether a relationship break is going to be the solution.
What To Remember Before Taking A Relationship Break
First of all, you have to understand that a break doesn’t necessarily have to be a sign of the end of everything. It can be a solution to a bigger or deeper problem that you cannot fix, as a couple, when you are together. However, before you go on a relationship break, you have to remember the following:
Be Clear About Why You’re Going On A Relationship Break
Why do you think you need a break? Are there other alternatives aside from cooling off apart? You have to double-check your purpose for your break. You don’t just go on it because you argued over a can of peas last night.
Set Clear Limits Plus An End Goal
What are you NOT allowed to do while you are on your break? Remember that you are still in a relationship. Being on break doesn’t give you permission to date others. It’s supposed to be a time where you try to fix your problems and yourselves individually. The end goal is either to make the relationship work or just end it.
Be Prepared If The Issues Are Too Deep
There are problems that you won’t be able to solve. For example, if your partner is a narcissist or a serial cheater, a break won’t work. your partner has to be willing to correct the wrongs that he or she has done, and with narcissists and cheaters, they hardly ever admit that they are wrong or that they need to change something in them.
If your relationship is already in trouble, it would be nice to be apart to sort things out. But, you and your partner have to be ready with the lessons that you will learn and the things that you will realize while you are on your relationship break. Are you going to move forward?
