When you are in a relationship you tend to spend most of your time with your partner. The amount of time you spend with your partner increases when you live together. Now in the beginning this is great. After all, you are still in your honeymoon phase so everything is sunshine and roses. But as you get to know your partner you might start to bump heads from time to time. Yes, arguments are normal in a relationship. However, what’s not normal is handling it in a toxic manner. When this happens it’s best to take some space apart from each other.

 

Being in a relationship is one of the best feelings in the world especially when you are head over heels in love with your person. There is just a certain level of intimacy you can only experience while being in a committed loving relationship. Now with that said, bumping heads is to be expected. We all have our own opinions and thoughts on things and sometimes we clash, yes even with the person you are madly in love with. So what do you do when the fighting becomes a bit more frequent? Well, taking space apart can really be a major benefit. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to mean that you are bailing on your relationship or that you aren’t committed.

All it means is that you need a couple of days to regroup and get your thoughts in order. If you live together this might mean staying apart for a few days. Use this time to think of why you are with your partner, why you got into this relationship and why you love this person. Then think of the fights. All you need to ask yourself when thinking about the fight is if they are worth it? Are they worth your time and overall energy? Once you are able to think of these questions, then you can go back to your partner and have a much-needed conversation about the future of your relationship.
