I’m having a really hard time right now. I was fine two/three days ago with my relationship, and I wasn’t having doubt or my uncomfortable thoughts. But ever since the accusations that my friend made about my boyfriend and all the stress and anxiety that happened from that, I just feel that I want to be by myself, and not feel stressed anymore. I feel like the only way I could fix it is if I wasn’t with my boyfriend anymore. I love him so much and I’m upset, I hope there are other ways I can deal with the stress instead of having to end my relationship. Remember I was fine and happy before all this craziness was happening. I’m not sure if because of the traumatizing events for the past two days are the reason I’m feeling this way. I really hope so, I don’t want to hurt him. I just want the stress to stop.

well yes you can ask for some space
and say that its not about him
if he is a good boyfriend, he will understand that
and enjoy taking some space for himself

I always insist on space in relationships
I cant do without it, I get angry and need to be on my own
some of my boyfriends wanted more space than I did !
