Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. - Unknown
We often think that the best way to show love and friendship to our friends and family is being with them and sharing with them as much as possible. We want them to feel cherished. Our loved ones know and understand that. They also sometimes need space to just be themselves and do whatever brings them peace, contentment and fulfillment.
Healthy relationships are not lessened by this, they are strengthened, and it allows us all to bring more interesting things back to the relationship.
