This is something that I make sure to do for hubby but I tend to not do for myself. By the time he catches on that I need space, it’s usually too late and somebody ends up upset. The idea of catching me before I explode was also brought up during out last anniversary conversation. He’s been doing well with reminding me to get my space, and I continue to do the same. I really benefit from 10 minutes of peace, whether it’s sitting in the bathroom on the side of the tub or running to just sit in the car and catch up on e-mails. I even ran away from home one time just to attain some type of sanity during a hard day.
Give them space
