I think you need to take as much time as you need in order to be healthy and work efficiently. It's great that you are working on learning about new technologies in your industry so you have something to show for your time off. Proud of you for doing what's best for you!

I don't think the gap is as important as what was accomplished during that gap

As long as you are learning new technologies, you should be able to highlight that time as productive.

At the time I was young and in the wrong and one of the partners tried (unsuccessfully) to sack me. Should I reconsider the move? Would they block my bid for partner based on bad blood from 10 years ago?
