Time Out RAXBF and I had still been in contact. We tried not to be then the odd texts would be sent back and forth then the odd phone call then he would ask if he could come over then he would come to my work for a workout when I was on shift, etc.

My home felt calm as he has moved to his Mum's and slowly but surely, I was beginning to feel OK. However, the only thing wrong with that was things could easily have slipped back to the way they were before he moved out so we both agreed on a 'Time Out.' A guy he sponsors got this advice from Therapists over the years but never tried it then it was too late as his wife sadly passed away but he suggested that my X and I try it. We spoke about it and we've agreed to have a 3 month period with no contact then we can see where we both are in terms of our recovery, how we both feel and what we both want.

Does anyone else think this is a good idea? Has anyone else tried this? Any thoughts/advice would be greatly received.

I think it's an excellent idea. Taking time to find your balance and decide what you want for your life will be easier to make when you look at this from a healthy perspective without any interference from anyone else.

Take time for you, do things you like doing and learn to find your own happiness.
