We’ve navigated (and are still navigating) a very strange and stressful time. And it’s totally normal that this near-apocalyptic state is making us re-examine our own ways of living. With regular life paused, we’re being challenged to take a step back and analyse how we can make changes to improve our health and happiness.
But it’s more than just realising you want to change careers, go on an adventure or move somewhere new. Your love life is in the spotlight and everything you might have been able to ignore or avoid pre-crisis is now glaringly clear now.
… Which is probably why you’ve been giving your significant other the suspicious side-eye recently.
Trust me, you’re not alone.
Here are the things that *might* be going through your mind (and changing in your relationship!) right now.
Like, at all. Absence is meant to make the heart grow fonder, but you’re feeling decidedly *shrug* about the distance between you and your partner right now. In fact, you’re in absolutely no rush to return to your significant other.
Pre-COVID-19, there were plenty of ways to hang out with your partner without actually having to engage with them on a meaningful level. Now that the distractions have disappeared, you’re staring at your partner on your phone screen, and realising that you really have very little in common.
Whether they’ve gone MIA and feel more distant than usual, or you’re struggling to find ways to feel close when lockdown demands you stay apart, the end result is the same: You’re just not connecting as deeply with them anymore.
Living in such close quarters all the bloody time has you scowling at their tendency to leave dirty dishes in the sink, filthy socks on the bathroom floor and wet towels on the bed. And while you might have been able to ignore it pre-COVID-19, now it seems like a deal-breaker.
There you are, staring up at the ceiling at 3am while your significant other obliviously snores next to you. And you can’t help but wonder: Is this really the person you’re going to spend your life with?
The uncertainty and anxiety COVID-19 has created means your household might be feeling a lot more on edge and tense now. And while pressure might make diamonds, it makes us humans irritable af. Which means … arguments. A lot of them. Over the big things, the little things and the totally random things.
How you view your relationship through the lens of lockdown likely depends on the shape it was in before COVID-19.
But before you utter those fateful words, here are three questions to ask yourself:
You don’t have to go through this alone. Let’s get you some (professional, expert and loving af) support.
