After a tough time, it's important to take a break and think about how far you've come. Take care of yourself to recharge.

Four of Swords

For this love reading, you drew the Four of Swords.

The Four of Swords card depicts a knight lying on a tomb with three swords suspended above him. These swords represent the struggles you have been facing in your love life. Despite this, the knight appears peaceful, suggesting that the agony has subsided, although its effects linger. The fourth sword, located beneath the knight, represents the phase of restoration that you are presently undergoing.

Withdrawing from Love Life

This card does not imply a breakup, so don't worry. It simply suggests that you need some me-time right now, especially if you're an introvert. It's normal if you and your partner have been spending a lot of time together and have been fighting a lot lately. Don't feel guilty if you want to read a book before bedtime instead of watching a movie together, as you usually do. If your partner truly loves you, they will understand that you also need privacy, even though you're close and share almost everything.

If you're currently single, it might be time to take a break from the dating scene. Perhaps you've been putting too much pressure on yourself to impress others and now you're feeling drained and uninterested in trying to win anyone over. However, there are plenty of other ways to take care of yourself during this time. Consider taking a relaxing bath, indulging in a new hobby, or catching up with friends. Sometimes, a little bit of self-care can go a long way in boosting your confidence and overall well-being.

Quality Alone Time

Spending time alone can help you understand the tough situation that has caused you to step back from everything. It's an opportunity to reflect on your past and learn from your mistakes, so you can avoid repeating them. Whatever you feel like doing – go for it. Take long walks, listen to music, and maybe even adopt a cat or dog (but remember that they're with you for the rest of their lives, even when you feel better and ready to go back to your old life). You don't need to justify yourself for needing time to gather yourself and move forward.

If you're in a relationship, it can be helpful to take a physical break from your partner as well, in addition to taking care of yourself. This doesn't necessarily mean breaking up, but rather it can be an opportunity to explore new environments and spend some time alone.

Consider planning a weekend getaway to a new city or even a longer vacation if you have the time. Taking a break can also be a chance to reflect on your relationship and what you want out of it, and can ultimately make your bond stronger. So, don't be afraid to take some time for yourself and your relationship!

Taking a Break

Many people believe that taking a break from everyday life implies that one has lost a battle. But lost against whom or what? Those who are as spiritual as you will support your decision. Taking a break from a relationship is not selfish – it’s called self-love and self-care.

And if you’re single, challenge yourself to enjoy your time alone. Don't be afraid to cancel a date if you're not in the mood to meet new people. However, be careful not to be alone for too long, as the other extreme can be as dangerous as the one you're trying to escape.

If you feel uncomfortable practicing your alone-time routine, start with baby steps. Dedicate just ten minutes today to yourself – and only yourself! Try out that face mask you bought but never had time to use. Listen to your favorite song. Write down the feelings and thoughts you have today.

Practice this every day, and increase your me-time if you feel like it. You'll notice the difference within yourself, and soon enough, you'll be strong enough to continue your life either with your favorite person or while having fun meeting new people!
