This is partly a rant, sorry. But I also need advice on how to say this to him. I need a break from my friend. I want to take a few months away from talking to him so I can decide if I want to be friends with him or not. I don't want to tell him that because I don't want to make it into a thing. I just need to figure my shit out secretly. He messaged me about my college graduation yesterday and a part of me wanted to ignore his text but then another part me felt like ignoring him is immature so I sent a text back. In the back of my mind I am thinking, i just really want him to leave me alone so I can figure my shit out. How can I say that without it sounding weird? Because maybe I'll take a two month break and decide I still want to be friends and I don't want him hurting, afraid I want to end our friendship during that time.
