Too often we get caught up in our need to control how the relationship with our partner will go. That need is based out of the fear that if we can just control it we could somehow decrease our chances of losing it. What we are really doing is creating an atmosphere of stress and resentment instead of a loving, respectful, romantic relationship. Most of us know from experience that a relationship that's built on control is a relationship that at least one partner will eventually request or demand some space. Let's be honest people need space in healthy relationships, and it shouldn't be viewed negatively. Just because we are a couple doesn't mean we don't have individual hobbies or interest. A control-based relationship can become toxic in many ways and certainly suffocate one or both partners. That doesn't sound like the type of union that would be healthy for anyone - certainly not romantic. Encouraging your partner to take some personal time to themselves without you is respecting their need to enjoy their own experiences. You're not giving them a hall-pass to cheat on you - just a chance to enjoy some personal time. This is something your partner should do for you as well. It's about respecting one another as individuals and experiencing how it can bring you closer as a couple. Be Well!
