Because getting through the initial pain of being single can be exactly what sends couples back into each others arms, getting through this time with the support of friends, taking a yoga class, joining a gym or even crossing something off of a bucket list can be significantly helpful in keeping busy until the wounds can be re-examined by a clear mind.
Taking an emotional break and stepping back from a toxic relationship is the best way to put it into perspective. The problem with getting caught in an on-again, off-again relationship is that the breakups often leave little time for reassessment since couples cave under the pressure of singleness.
