While this may be the answer for some, it may not necessarily mean anything to you and your relationship, for that matter.
You may still want to be there for them but if you are still constantly around, it may be hard for them to grasp the fact that the relationship is over.When I typed out these words as an idea for an article on abstinence, I realized this was a difficult topic to get people talking about.When I asked my peers to share their stories, few were virgins with no sexual history, and even fewer wanted to talk about it. Recounting my own sin made me feel like the chief of hypocrites.In this day and age, the traditional stigma that has long accompanied a couple's decision to take a break from their relationship is gradually fading as a thing of the past. You no longer hear one another, you can hardly sustain a conversation without it erupting into a full blown fight within minutes... On the other hand, if during this time apart, you realize that you hardly ever miss your partner, it might be a clear sign that you may, sadly, be approaching the end of the long and winding road.It's become increasingly clear that deciding to give each other space does not necessarily equal in the direct sense of the term. Yes, it may be worth looking into calming down and getting yourselves together individually before you can do so collectively. Both time and distance have been known to refuel love and longing for one another. Letting go may no longer be an option but instead, your only available solution. Learning more about your loved one is, of course, invaluable for a healthy partnership (particularly as far as long-term relationships go.) But somewhere along the way, much like a vessel, we find ourselves falling deeper and deeper into our other half and their whole being, while inevitably losing touch with ourselves and our identity.Behave maturely and have a real discussion with them.
