You should discuss whatever issues that your relationship may be suffering from.
Taking a two week break is not going to change the issues or problems.
All you would be doing is going away from each other for a period of time and nothing more.
What is actually getting accomplished while you are taking that break?
You are away from each other.
Nothing is being resolved when the both of you are not in the same physical space to solve the problem.
Some people in relationships have the false notion that by simply taking a break from their partner, everything will be back to normal or better when they get back together.
Unfortunately, this isn’t really how things work out.
It is almost like sweeping dirt under a rug and going off on vacation for two weeks.
When you get back from vacation, that dirt will still be under the rug.
In other words, your relationship problems will not get fixed by simply going away for two weeks.
You both need to sit down and work this out.
You should have an honest discussion with each other where you both express your opinions.
The goal should be to be civil and work through these issues together.
If you were to become too emotional or belligerent, it will be impossible to resolve the issues.
You would either continue running into moments where one partner has to cut the discussion short due to emotional unhappiness or you would simply find it hard to communicate over each other’s bickering.
If you value your relationship and truly want to see it flourish, your approach should be one of patience and concern.
You have to set the example of being the one who makes a true effort to be patient and understanding during this discussion.
When your partner sees how much effort you are putting into trying to have a civil discussion, they would be more prone to do the same.
Again, taking a two week break is not the solution to your problem.
You should understand that the sooner you tackle this problem as opposed to hide from it, the sooner you can get it resolved.
Just have this discussion and be honest and open with each other when you do.
Allow your partner to have their say.
Hear them out without interrupting them.
For a good relationship to happen, both partners must be willing to hear each other out and truly consider what is being said.
You will be able to resolve your issues when you address them head on.
No more delays.
Another very important thing you have to understand is that your relationship problems will need some time to work out.
In other words, a discussion is not necessarily going to solve all of the problems in this relationship overnight.
Your discussion should lead to an identification of what the problem areas are.
From here, the both of you should come up with a comprehensive plan to tackle those problem areas one at a time.
When you come up with the strategy to do this and have the patience to let this process unfold, you would have the best chance at making your relationship flourish.
Face the problem head on.
Taking a break for two weeks solves nothing.
