Too many women rob themselves from knowing their man wanted to be there by allowing personal fears to control what he did. How many women do you know who orchestrated their whole engagement? Plenty!
On the other hand, if you have a man who won’t give you what you need, the best thing you can do is let him go. Don’t be a woman who regrets how much time she spent in a relationship that didn’t go where you wanted it to.
Of course, if you are the reason he’s hitting the road, get whatever help you need to get yourself together. It’s okay to be scared and insecure because we all get that way sometimes, but make sure you are not letting yourself act out from that place.
Here is an interesting video on why he may be withdrawing away from you:
What you need to do now
“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater.” – Sarah Dessen
It can be a horrible feeling when your man starts to withdraw into himself. It can feel like a rejection and you may feel insecure about your relationship. But you need to understand that your man is simply trying to process and sort through his own emotions and thoughts. The best way to deal with a difficult situation like this is to give him all the space he needs.
Yes, it will be very difficult, but this is the only option you have. Give him the space to be himself. Let him work through his things and come back to you. You should also use this time to focus on your self-growth and learn to be more open and accepting in a relationship as the dynamics keep changing constantly.
But giving space doesn’t mean going no-contact. You can still continue to contact him and meet him. However, you need to be respectful and do this the way he needs to at this time. You have to respect his need to be by himself. This will show him that you care about him without being needy or demanding.
