The COVID pandemic has not been kind to love. Socially distancing has challenged all types of relationships: couples in new relationships may be separated for long periods of time, people in troubled relationships are stuck together (whether or not they want to be), and many single people are challenged with the loneliness of isolation. For better or worse, no relationship is going to be the same after the pandemic.
Just like our bodies, relationships need a healthy immune system – a system built on security, connection, and integrity. Here are 3 tips to help strengthen your relationships during these trying times:
We are all experiencing an incredible amount of stress with the state of the world. Remember that nothing happens by coincidence. There is something positive that we can all take from this experience. Take the time to strengthen your relationship, but also cut it some slack. Know that the pressure you are experiencing is abnormal and does not represent what your relationship will always look like. Our challenges are heightened right now, which gives us a great opportunity to reflect on the state of things but know that nothing stays the same forever.
