Most of the breaks are triggered by small events. Maybe she gets annoyed at me, or I get annoyed at her. Just small annoyances that aren't worth getting into a fight over. But, it does trigger a "I need space" reflex.
In your case, don't take it too personally. Your friendship may have run its course naturally, or maybe in a few weeks, it will restart again. But this happens to everyone with intense friendships...not just you.
I guess i've never experienced this. In the past,anytime a friendship had a break or something,it was because of a fight. Or there was never a "break" at all. That's why it's so odd for me cuz i've never experienced this.
