I had taken a leave of absence from work last year due to a bad break up with my partner. I had caught him cheating on me for a quite long period of time. My mind was really out of focus and my heart was really hurting. I really couldn't give my best at work and wouldn't have been able to meet the expectations to me at work. So I decided to request for my manager's approval for the said reason which is, I think, a fair enough reason.
Then after months of arrangements, me and my partner had patched things up and got back together recently. This shocked my manager, as last year I really made my mind not to forgive him and no plans of getting back with him, because I was really hurting at that time. I just felt annoyed that I was being questioned now about that leave of absence being granted, when we still ended up getting back together. Because my point is the leave of absence being requested was due to me not being in the right state at that time. I decided to take a few days break to get myself together, so when I came back to work I would be able to perform well.
Is it really necessary for me to update my manager on me and my partner getting back together?
