During these strange times, a lot of us are now either out of work or working from home. This means we may be spending a lot more time with our significant other or even just a friend or roommate.
These people are in our lives because we care about them. Most relationships, however, were not created by having nonstop time with the other person. Whether you identify as an introvert, extrovert or ambivert, unlimited time with another person is hard. To help make social distancing more bearable for you and your partner, I’ve created some guidelines for getting through this long-term home life.
Don’t let social distancing negatively impact your relationship. Just remember to give each other breaks because we’re all just doing the best we can with this very difficult, scary and stressful situation.
If the COVID-19 outbreak has gotten the best of you and/or your partner, contact our team today to learn more about our virtual counseling options for both couples and individuals.
