Sometimes, you have to keep yourself away from the person you love even for a short period of time.
It’s not because you fell out of love.
It’s not because you’re being prideful.
It’s not because you are bored.
It is because you just need to take a break from all the pains it caused.
But, the love is still on fire.
You just want to take things slowly and recall why your relationship is still going strong despite all the heart breaking things happened. You just want to know if the love you’re giving is too much that it chokes them. Or not enough that they feel neglected and unimportant.
To be away from them for awhile doesn’t make your love fade away but instead it makes you independent from their love. To free yourself from being clingy and give them the time to breathe. Without you.
To be away from them is not necessarily leaving them alone and broken but finding your worth as their other half. If they will look for you when you are trying to idle in a little while. Finding your place.
To be away from them makes you a whole person again after you have been broken into pieces and be able to love them again. Wholeheartedly.
That is, a part of the epitome of love.
