Taking A Break From A Relationship To Work On Yourself

There are some moments when you will have to take a break from a relationship to work on yourself.

 

In this article, I will share with you these moments when you should take a break and work on yourself.

 

I have to be honest with you about one thing, there is no way you will create a better relationship if you are not in your right state of mind.

 

If there is so much going on in your life to an extent that you can’t focus on yourself then know that it will be hard for you to even commit to your relationship.

 

These are the times you will need to take a break from your relationship to find yourself.

 

Your partner should understand this.

 

Anyway, with that much said, let me share with you when you should take a break from a relationship to work on yourself.

 

When to take a break from your relationship to work on yourself;

1. When you feel the relationship is exhausting.

You should love yourself more than you love someone else. This is so important.

 

Don’t put anyone else above your needs. You have to be selfish because you matter more than someone else.

 

When we are in a relationship we try so much to give everything to the person we are dating to an extent we forget about ourselves.

 

You have to take good care of yourself if you want to have the power to work on your relationship.

 

If you won’t be in a good state then you will never be able to work on your relationship.

 

When you have tried everything in your relationship and nothing seems to be working the way you desire and everything in that relationship seems exhausting then you will have to give yourself a break.

 

You will have to give yourself a break because if you keep pushing too hard something that doesn’t seem to be moving forward you will end up hurting yourself.

 

So, when you find that your relationship feels like a chore to you and it’s no longer exciting then know that you are worn out.

 

You are exhausted from working so hard for this relationship to move to the right path.

 

The only solution for this is to give yourself a break and take it easy.

 

Talk to your partner about it, she or he might not like it but it will be the best thing for all of you.

 

There is no way you can handle that relationship in the right way if you find it exhausting.

 

This is because you will not feel it and you will be doing nothing good to yourself.

 

When you find your relationship exhausting for so long no matter how hard you have tried to change this condition the only remedy that will be left for you is to take a break from that relationship.

 

2. When you feel like nothing is working in your relationship.

This is the other moment when you should take a break from your relationship to work on yourself.

 

If you have been in a relationship for a while and nothing seems to be working no matter how much you try you will have to give yourself a break.

 

For instance, everything you do to make things better in your relationship doesn’t work to your expectations, you do good things intending to save your relationship but it ends up breaking it and almost everything seems a mess in your relationship.

 

If this is the situation you are in then you will have no alternative but to give yourself a break.

 

When you try to fix things you break them, when you try to make your partner smile you end up making him or her cry and nothing that you do seems to be working, this should tell you that you need a break.

 

This clearly shows you are don’t know what you are doing in that relationship.

 

The more you will stay in that relationship the more you will keep making things worse for your partner.

 

So, if you want to work things out in your relationship the first thing you will have to do is to work on yourself before you think of doing anything for your relationship.

 

And this will force you to take a break from the relationship to work on yourself.

 

3. When you have so much stuff to handle in your life.

Your life can wreck your relationship into pieces without you knowing.

 

If you have so much stuff to deal with in your life to an extent you can’t commit to your relationship then you will have to give yourself a break from the relationship.

 

Don’t try so hard to compete with yourself, you will end up hurting yourself.

 

You have to know that a relationship needs so much commitment and concentration.

 

If there is anything outside your relationship taking so much of your commitment then know that at one point you will find yourself leaning towards the other side of your relationship.

 

And when this happens the relationship will not stand a chance to survive.

 

You will end up blaming and hating yourself but the main issue that did that is your life in general.

 

So, if know that your life expects so much from you to an extent you won’t have the time and energy to commit to your relationship then you will have no alternative but to give yourself a break.

 

If you push yourself so hard to make sure that you maintain the commitment in your relationship and what your life requires more of you then you will end up hurting yourself.

 

Take a break from the relationship and work on yourself first and make life in order before you decide to work your relationship again.

 

4. When you no longer know the course of your relationship.

If you don’t know where your relationship is going then you will have no other choice but to give yourself a break.

The moment you have no idea when your relationship is going this means that you don’t know what you are doing in that relationship.

 

You don’t know whether you should commit to that relationship or give up on the relationship.

 

This clearly shows your relationship is a mess. There is no way you will be happy in a relationship that you don’t know its course.

 

You don’t know the course of the relationship and that is why you are confused about what to do and which direction you should take your relationship.

 

When it reaches this point you will have to take a break from your relationship.

 

This is because it will be hard for you to do anything productive in that relationship.

 

Take a break to recharge yourself so that you can have a clear path that you will schedule for your relationship to follow.

 

Do this and thank me later.

 

5. When your mental health becomes an issue.

This is something very important for you have to consider if you want to make sure that you are in the best state of mind.

 

If you are so much stressed about the relationship, it’s draining you out and you feel that you can no longer think straight then you will have no option but to take a break from the relationship.

 

When you are in this state then you will have to think of yourself more than the relationship.

 

Make yourself a priority because you are the driver of the relationship.

 

If you are not in the right state of mind it will be so hard for you to drive the relationship the way it’s expected and you will mess things up.

 

On the other side if you stretch yourself too much you will hurt yourself and you will lose it all.

 

So, if you are in a situation where you feel your mind can no longer think straight about the relationship you will not have an option but to take a break from the relationship.

 

6. When you want to get a clear picture of what to do with your relationship.

If you don’t have a clear picture of what to do with your relationship, the only thing you see are days passing by and there is nothing important progressing in your relationship then you will have to take a break from that relationship.

When you don’t know what to do with your relationship it will be so hard for you to take it the way you expect.

 

You will waste your time and effort trying to make your relationship look like something that you will never admire.

 

If you don’t know what to do with your relationship the only thing you will have to do is distance yourself from it.

 

Be a distance from your relationship and start looking at it when you are in someone else’s shoes.

 

When you do this, you will have a clear picture of what you should do with your relationship.

 

From afar you will be able to see the structure and layout of your relationship.

 

And this will give you a clear picture of what you should do with your relationship.

 

You will only be able to achieve this by taking a break from the relationship and focusing on yourself.

 

When you give yourself a break you will be able to see what you can do best with your relationship because you are not under any pressure.

 

This will be hard for you to when you will be in the relationship.

 

Lastly…

 

The moment you don’t know how things are progressing in your relationship, you find your relationship exhausting, you don’t know what to do with your relationship and you have so much to handle in your life then you should take a break from your relationship.

 

This break will help you think straight and decide what things will be best for your relationship. It will also help you recharge and when you get back to your relationship you will be energized to work on your relationship.

 

The same break will work out issues between your partner and you without using so much effort.

 

So, if you feel you are pushed to the edge to an extent you feel you can longer do anything to work on your relationship then you will have to take a break to figure out what you can do about your relationship.

 

Trying so hard to make things work in your relationship will only put you at risk of hurting yourself.
