Comment on Cool Off Period Vs No Contact (Self-Preservation Vs Relationship) by Lea.
Hello Yangki, thank you very much for your articles, they really help. I’ve listened to a lot of coachs preaching for no contact but I think it’s weird.
I do believe than a cool off period is necessary.
My ex broke up almost 2 months ago. After I tried to communicate about our issues and asking him to work it out he said “I’ll take some time for myself during the summer and we’ll assess the situation in september, maybe we should not throw away everything”
So I’m in a forced “no contact” but I’m using this time to improve myself, my anxiety and needy behavior. And get less emotionnal about the break up because I miss him terribly.
Do you think 2 months is too long for a cool off period? Won’t it be disrespectful of him if I try to contact him earlier?
