6 WAYS TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY SPACE IN A RELATIONSHIP

  1. All these movies and TV shows – that made it sound like being in a couple meant enjoying every second of your life together – which is SO untrue. Love your post – it covers such an important topic that actually took me years and a very messy break up to understand. The last time I was in love, we were in uni together and just practically together 24 hours a day. We’d eat all meals together, go out together, spend time between classes together and I’d prioritize him over all my uni friends. But he’d want his space to play football or video games or go out with his friends – and I’d be such a bitch about it. ARGHHH. I shudder at what a clingy girl I used to be.
    Now I am so used to my ME time that I get annoyed if anyone tries to not let me have my space. I love everything you said – it is so important to respect each other’s need for space, to have me time and to understand the other’s need for me time.

    1. Yes omg thank u for this awesome feedback! And yes omg there’s no way I started out like this and I think we all have clingy periods in life, even guys too. And then it’s like, oh shit, that’s bad and I’m miserable and they hate it and I suck ha! You’re totally ahead of the game if you figured this out this early! Yay we’re such goddesses!! 🤣🤣🌺🌺

  2. Great advice. You’re totally right, reframing the way we each view space in a relationship is very crucial. In an intimate relationship, I find it so easy to get lost on different genres, let alone pages.. Just by how you define boundaries, feelings, healthy habits etc.. Ultimately, communication is key.

  3. I love this! I soooo need space, and will leave a relationship if a partner can’t or won’t give me space even after I’ve very clearly and nicely and directly communicated my need.

    1. Yeah we’re not wrong for needing that! And yeah if they can’t give it then it’s just not gonna work 💔 same page goddess, you’re the best! And thanks always for reading! xoxo ☺️
