Your experiences being on a "break" from SO

Have you or you loved one ever decided you two need a break?

Me and my bf moved out, we both moved back to our parents. (Worst day ever lol)

Im devistated. He said he needed some time to think,and see if he can trust me again.

My friends and family think I messed up,but its nothing that shouldve led to this blowout.

Hes not sure if we have a future. While,im super sure he is the love of my life...

Just wanna hear from people that have did the "break" thing, did it help or hurt you guys?

Thanks :)
