When someone ask for a break in a relationship YOU MUST RESPECT IT. No ifs, buts or maybe about it.
When someone needs space in a relationship it’s because they need time away. Maybe, the relationship is falling apart. Maybe your partner needs space. Maybe, your partner has so much stress going on in his life they feel overwhelmed. When someone says NO, you must respect that.
Unless, YOU KNOW FOR SURE, that they are KIDDING. You must always get their consent and permission when it comes to how you exchange your sexual energy and this goes for most things during the actual relationship. This is raped if there is no consent, which is reportable to the police. It is also harassment or sexual harassment which is illegal and is a criminal offense. Which is why you must always monitor your partner and ask them questions. Check in on them and make sure it’s okay.
This is why it’s important to take time off, breaks away, separation because this will help everyone involved in the relationship to RECOVER from any stress there are going through.
If you don’t respect this will turn off your partner because you will appear too clingy, too attached, too desperate, too needy, and many other negative attributes. And when this happens YOU PUSH YOUR PARTNER FURTHER AWAY.
THAT’S WHY BREAKS IN A RELATIONSHIP IS IMPORTANT. IT GIVES EVERYONE TIME AND SPACE TO RECOVER THEIR ENERGY.
