Five good reasons to take a break in your relationship




Every relationship is unique, and people come together for many reasons. Part of what defines a healthy relationship is sharing a common goal for exactly what you want the relationship to be and where you want it to go. And that’s something you’ll only know by talking deeply and honestly with your partner.

Sometimes relationships can get really tough for no apparent reason. And there are times when it gets tough because there were some serious issues that just don’t seem to have a solution.

Irrespective of all your efforts, things just aren’t getting better. Since there is a lot of tension, fights, and arguments, the best thing you could do at such a time is take a break.

Many of you fear taking a break in a relationship thinking the break means it’s over. A break doesn’t necessarily mean that your relationship is ending.

Sometimes, it is very important that you take a break just so that you understand where your relationship stands currently.

And apart from that, here are 5 reasons why taking a break in a relationship is so important.

1. It gives you a lot of time to introspect

You may hate this phase of fights and anger. You may hate the fact that after spending so much time with each other you need to still think about your relationship. But you really need to look at it this way. Take it positively. Think of all the good times that you two have enjoyed together. It is okay even if a few negative points come to your mind, because there will also be a lot of positive points. So take this break as a boon.

2. You will also get a chance to cool down

When a relationship is going through a bad phase, there is usually a lot of anger and resentment.  You will end up taking decisions in haste and will also blurt out things that you never really meant. And if you take a break, you will get ample time to just calm down. Once you get time to cool down, you can rethink about all the things that are important, things that do not matter, things that maybe you shouldn’t have done or said and so on.

3. You will start realizing your mistakes

And because you have given yourself some time to calm down, you will be able to act maturely and look at things with a different perspective. When two people fight, the anger is so much that it becomes almost impossible for one to see their own mistakes. Ego takes over and even if you realize your mistake, you do not admit it. This is what makes a situation worse. So when you have decided to take a break and calm down, you will soon start to see your own mistakes.

4. Your feelings towards your partner will be clearer

One reason is because when you spend time alone away from your partner, you will get a chance to analyse your feelings towards your partner. Does his/her presence matter to you? Do you miss him/her? Do you still love him/her? After being away from your partner , do you feel like just going back to him/her? These are some of the questions that you will find answers to. So taking a break is not a bad thing after all, isn’t it?

5. You will start looking at your relationship with a fresh perspective

There are so many people in a relationship purely out of habit. They choose to do this because it is comfortable and convenient that way. To understand why your relationship has so many problems, a break is essential. It will help you get a fresh perspective about your relationship. You will learn to look at it differently, and it will help you get a better understanding of your feelings.
