“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.” – Max de Pree Grindr.com
When you smother someone too much and constantly give too much of yourself to someone, that person starts to get annoyed, then they become distant, and then they lose interest.
No one likes to be smothered. No one likes to be around and spend time with the same person all of the time. Sometimes you need to take a break to spend time with yourself or to spend time with other people.
It’s good to take breaks away from people sometimes because it is possible to get so wrapped up in someone else’s life that you start to neglect your own life.
You have to take time for yourself every now and then to nurture your own hobbies, your own goals, your own dreams, your own peace, and your own happiness.
And you must do this away from your Grindr partner.
Allow your partner to take time for himself too so that he can nurture his own hobbies, his own goals, his own dreams, his own peace, and his own happiness.
And, over time, you’ll find that you two will be much better off because of it.
Lesson: Give each other space to grow, learn, and be yourselves
