Why Taking A Break In A Relationship Is Good?
There’s this phase in every relationship where you don’t understand what is going wrong. Day in and out there are fights and misunderstandings for every possible thing as silly as picking up the call after a few rings or turning up a few minutes late for genuine reasons. Whatever you try, it just doesn’t work. Neither of you is to be blamed in this situation, you love him/her so much and you know they do too. Yet there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel, however hard you try. You just can’t seem to solve it nor stand it.
Why is it like this and what to do are the constant thoughts in your head. It gets nearly impossible to concentrate on anything else that after a point you start to feel that it might be better if you were alone. I bet most of you can sympathize with this.
So what to do? Consider taking a break in your relationship. It is bound to help in one way or the other.
1. A break helps in distancing problems!
When you are too confused about something, it is better to look at it from a distance. Problems make sense when they are looked at from outside and solutions come easily. Anything looked at from a distance is bound to look smaller! Problems and confusions are no exception.

2. Lessens your obsession
In a romantic relationship, we constantly keep thinking what the other person is up to, what is running in their mind, what would be their opinion on something and the list doesn’t stop. This obsession with your partner and their routine is harmful to you in a way. Although it’s good to say that love is magical and made you guys into one. Face the fact, two different people are involved and they are bound to have two different courses of life. This understanding doesn’t come to us very easily. We might insist on being a part of all their experiences and will expect them to be in ours. Misunderstandings build here! A break will help clear the cloud in your mind and make you and your partner realize your lives are different, it’s important to understand this and support each other!
3. Helps in taking matured decisions
There is never a better life lesson than learning to be on your own. It doesn’t mean you are not supposed to be in a relationship. It means you learn how not to be dependent on every small thing. Choosing to be away from your partner for a short while will help you grow emotionally and mentally. It will be easier for you to distinguish your life and take matured decisions.
4. Makes you realize the worth of your Relationship
We don’t realize the importance of anything that is always with us. It applies to relationships also! Take a break! Sometimes it is just good to sit by the window and stare through it, thinking about the times when you were sitting next to him/her and miss those times. Missing is a way of strengthening the love for each other.
5. Brings your thought process to perspective
Calm your mind and distract any thoughts related to your relationship for a few days. Relationship thoughts will find their own way slowly into your mind and you will realize that this time it is so much clearer and makes immense sense. Now, your heart and mind will fall in sync. It’s easier to listen when both of them tell the same thing, isn’t it?
6. Psychology says it too!
Taking a break is vital for our mental health. Anything that stresses our brain needs to stop at a point. Breaks rejuvenate our minds and boost our mood, helping in handling situations better. Most importantly, keeps us happy and content. You might ask how the same applies in this case. It does. A break is just a break and nothing more. Taking a break from work is usual but from a relationship? Sounds like a huge decision right? It is not supposed to. Just a week’s time or a few months in some cases should do the magic. Don’t put too much effort into taking a break, it kills the entire idea. If you’re married, it’s still fine to want a break from being a husband/wife or a mother /father. It’s fine.
