题目：Some people believe that spending more time far away from people we care about is necessary for people to understand the importance of relationship we care about. Others believe that spending time with people we care about as much as possible can develop relationship. Which do you think is better?
Who are the people you care about the most? I guess, for most people, the answer might be more or less the same. Our family members, close friends or partner. Of course you want to spend more time with people you care about, yet, sometimes, distance is also needed for us to understand the importance of the relationship.
If we spend too much time with people we care about, we might take this relationship for granted. Imagine, you can see the people you care about everyday or even you live together. Gradually, you will get used to the companionship, care and assistance they provide you with. You might feel they are supposed to offer you all these, preparing everything at your fingerprints. Eventually it might leads to your ignorance of how much this relationship matters to you because your needs are so readily satisfied. Last year, my older brother went back to Taiwan for undergrad study. Not until that time did I realize how much I actually miss him being around me. Before, when we lived together, we argued a lot and his way of caring about me was so subtle that I couldn’t even notice it. However, looking back to the days we were together, he indeed did a lot for me. Now I understand, sometimes, the separation and distance will bring people closer and let you truly understand how important the relationship is.
For some types of relationships, personal space is fairly essential. If I stick with the person I care about everyday, after a while, I might feel tired or even annoyed, which is not healthy for the relationship. This is especially true between close friends. I am the kind of person who enjoys solitary activities, such as watching movies alone or simply riding a bicycle wandering around to explore the city. These alone times really help me to calm myself, enabling me to be more peaceful and stress-free. Occasional gatherings or parties with friends are absolutely enjoyable, but personal space is also indispensable.
All in all, temporary separation with people we care about can definitely be beneficial for a better development of the relationship for it gives us more opportunities to realize its importance.
