I need your opinions, please.

when a survivor (my BF) states he needs some space or back off awhile, what does that mean??? i know a very broad question, but a sincere one. how can i honor boundaries when i do not know what his are right now??? ( i have asked)

please do not suggest i use this time to help myself...already in therapy to do that and i will continue reguardless of our outcome....(thanks) , but i do not want to lose this wonderful man from my life.... he is my best friend....but i want to respect his need for space...

as a survivor, what would or was right for you??
My T suggests emailing him once a week to tell him I am here and I love you, but no more..... i have done that with no response from him at all.
any and all opinions welcome...
and thanks.
