When You Hear the Words “I Need Space” It Is Not the End of the World

When you are in a relationship everything seems great.

You start to spend a lot of your time with your significant other. You start to share adventures together and make memories. So when the words, “I need space” come up all of a sudden during the relationship, you feel crushed. Believe it or not, this is actually pretty normal and if you do it right it does not mean that it is the end of your relationship.

You should be able to say what is on your mind and talk it out to make sure that you are both on the same page. After that is all said and done you should respect their request for some space. This is not something to take personally. It is healthy to have time apart and just do what you love. Make sure that you guys talk about a time frame for this need for space. Even if they do not know at that moment, asking them to keep you in the loop of when they are good again will help you know when it is good to not give so much space.

This happens to more relationships than people think. Just because someone needs space does not mean that it is over. It just means that person needs and wants to do a few things alone for a little bit to make sure that they have not lost themselves in a relationship. Just do your thing and it will all work out in the end.
