My boyfriend snapped at me the other day & I realized maybe we both needed some time alone. So, I decided to give him some space, not call or text & just focus on relaxing & taking some time for myself. I have anxiety so I know that can be a pain, so I just decided maybe both of us doing our own thing for a few days would give us a chance to miss each other? This is normal, right? My friends think people who have been together for awhile & don't live together don't need some alone time. But I think it's healthy to give yourself a few days where you're not texting anyone & inside your own head to recharge.

As an introvert, I totally understand that. I find social interactions over an extended period draining, and need space to recharge.0

I think that a certain level of distance is healthy for a relationship so long as you remain committed to one another. Having personal time allows you to reconnect with yourself as an individual, and a strong sense of self is very important to be happy.0
