THINGS TO READ THINGS TO DO
When my partner is away for work I find I am way more productive than when they are home. When they are away...I eat better and less, eating only when I am hungry. I workout every single day. I stay up later working on personal projects. I hardly watch TV. I listen to music more. I make more of an effort to see friends and family and talk on the phone. When they are home, I overeat, I don't workout often, and usually come home just to watch TV. I don't get much done, don't listen to music or talk on the phone. So I wonder if I would better off alone. I have often said/thought that I would prefer to have my own bedroom and sleep in my own bed. Having my own space is extremely gratifying. Of course I'm not adverse to sex, and have a high sex drive. But I would sleep much better when I'm not worried about waking up my partner. I'm not mad or angry at my partner when they come back and genuinely miss them. But sometimes I think I should end things with them, so that I can be alone and as productive as I am when they are away. I'm not afraid to be alone, I am very comfortable with my own company. It seems like such a petty thing to end it. Is this a valid reason to end a relationship? Will it make sense to them? Why do I act so differently when they are home?
