Space The Final Frontier (In Relationships)

Space The Final Frontier (In Relationships)

This is one of the hardest concepts for me personally to get a grasp of - when the words, "I need some space" come up.  Sure we all need some time for ourselves now and then.  However, I am talking about when this comes up during a heated discussion.  Only within the last few years have I grown to understand this.  It is not that the other person wants to get away from his/her partner (well, maybe), but it is that he/she needs to step away from the situation or discussion.  He/she needs time to run things through his/her head without outside forces trying to explain it.   The so-called space needed isn't about negativity - it is about understanding.  You or your partner may need time to sort out the situation and come up with the best solution.  

Next time you get into a heated discussion maybe you both could just grab some space and then reconvene and calmly discuss it with cooler heads.  Space might be the final frontier, but it can also be a nice place to get yourself back into rational thinking.
