Ola my friends!
This is a great question and I’ve been thinking about people who are separated from their partners a lot. As most of you know, I live with Pete so I don’t have this challenge. I’m missing my family – my parents, nieces, brother, sister and sister-in-law. If Pete and I were apart during this time, I would miss him MASSIVELY!
Since it’s a time of uncertainty, it’s really easy to experience prolonged heightened fear and this gets in the way of our relationships, big time. Fear makes us misunderstand each other, it can make us doubt each other’s ability to take care of one another, it can lead us to become overly clingy or withdrawing.
So, whether you live together or apart, this time is challenging for all couples.
