My boyfriend and I have been together for four years. We’ve had our fair share of ups and downs and have always worked through it. Lately my mental health has deteriorated exponentially. I feel the best thing for us, and mainly for him, is to take a break. I know how hard it can be on him when he can’t fix me or make me feel better and I feel like I need to figure out my illness on my own. But I don’t want to hurt him by suggesting a break... what should I do?
