Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

I'm struggling in my relationship and I'm not sure if it's because of the stress from work, school, or other things going on in my life. I want to try to work things out, but I don't want to ignore the warning signs that maybe it's time to take a break. When do I know it is time to take a break?

There isn't a definitive answer, but usually, when you're feeling overwhelmed and like you're constantly fighting, it's a good indication that you need a break. If you're not sure, talk to your partner about how you're feeling and see if they're open to taking a break too. It's important to communicate openly and honestly with your partner to ensure that both of you are on the same page. If you decide to take a break, make sure to set some ground rules so that both of you know what to expect. Lastly, don't be afraid to seek out professional help if you're struggling to communicate with your partner or manage your emotions. A therapist can provide guidance and support as you navigate this difficult time.
