My partner asked for a break we started as of Friday, but on the basis of still continuing with the relationship, he said I just need a couple of weeks - should I be worried? This break came about after several recent arguments and past which was all down to me. I’m so confused and lost. I failed to ask if we still communicate with each other, my friend suggests every two days. Also before I agreed to the break, I had been living with him at weekends so I had to clear my things out, but he took me home afterwards
JA: The Psychologist will know what to do. Is there anything else the Psychologist should be aware of?
Customer: Sorry like what?
