You will also get a chance to cool down
When a relationship is going through a bad phase, there is usually a lot of anger and resentment. You will end up taking decisions in haste and will also blurt out things that you never really meant. And if you take a break, you will get ample time to just calm down. Once you get time to cool down, you can rethink about all the things that are important, things that do not matter, things that maybe you shouldn’t have done or said and so on. Having a discussion when you are composed is the best thing to do. ALSO READ How to deal with Breakup: These are the 6 psychologically proven ways to get over your ex!
You will start realizing your mistakes
And because you have given yourself some time to calm down, you will be able to act maturely and look at things with a different perspective. When two people fight, the anger is so much that it becomes almost impossible for one to see their own mistakes. Ego takes over and even if you realize your mistake, you do not admit it. This is what makes a situation worse. The blame game never ends and that just worsens the situation. So when you have decided to take a break and calm down, you will soon start to see your own mistakes. You will realize all those things that you shouldn’t have said or done. And this realization is enough to clear out most of the problems.
Your feelings towards your partner will be clearer
It doesn’t matter how long you have been with your partner. Chances of one of you having different or changed feelings is high and it is normal. If your relationship has been on the rocks for quite sometime now and you guys have mutually decided to take a break, then this is the best thing you could have done. One reason is because when you spend time alone away from your partner, you will get a chance to analyse your feelings towards your partner. Does his/her presence matter to you? Do you miss him/her? Do you still love him/her? After being away from your partner , do you feel like just going back to him/her? These are some of the questions that you will find answers to.
