For those of you that are #quarantined with a spouse or partner, you are faced with new challenges and opportunities like never before. This global pandemic impacts everyone and their relationships. This is a stressful time where we need comfort and relationships more than ever. We will never be the same and must find ways to be resilient in our primary relationship.
5 Tips to Strategize and Thrive
Below are five tips that can help you strategize and thrive during this unforgettable experience.
1. Avoid all major life decisions until the quarantine is lifted.
Thoughts of divorce, ending the relationship, moving, etc. may cross your mind, yet you must focus on the positive traits within the relationship. It is not the time to make life-changing decisions of any kind; instead, exercise patience and more patience. The exception to this tip is life-threatening situations that impact you or your loved ones. If you or anyone you know experiences domestic violence, call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) and get help 24/7 or go to thehotline.org.
