Love. It’s a beautiful thing. It also comes with its daily ups and downs. Then there’s life. Life also comes it with its daily dose of twists and turns. We learn to balance the two, but sometimes our every day life obstacles outside of the relationship can take us through certain loops and on a wild ride that can make it hard to balance a relationship– especially when there’s issues that need addressing in the relationship. It’s frustrating trying to fix and balance both life and love issues.
This is one it’s perfectly okay to step back from the relationship for a second. Meaning no contact at all with each other for a certain amount of time.
Sometimes we can put so much into fixing the issues within our relationship that leave things that need our focus more in our personal lives. We tend to forget about ourselves and who we are. We put our work, school, or family tasks on the back burner because we don’t want our relationship to die. But we must take care of our own well being first and foremost.
