The current Pandemic has brought various lifestyle changes that we are slowly learning how to cope with. The inability to meet your loved ones has made things difficult, especially in relationships.
Dee King says, “Love will travel as far as you let it. It has no limits.”
And given the circumstances, there are many new and old couples who have to be in a long-distance relationship. Here are some ways you can help each other and cope with this distance –
1. Prioritise your schedules
If you both are working and have to share household responsibilities, try to fix a schedule. Denote a couple of hours to each other. But in case you aren’t able to talk at the fixed time, let your partner know it is okay.
2. Focus on the small things
Every conversation you both have, share even the mundane details of your day. Talk about the things you felt throughout the day or what made you happy. Let the small things become your point of connection with each other. Sharing these will make you feel closer to your partner.
3. Give each other space
Mental health has taken a toll for a lot of people. If your partner feels low or is unable to talk to you for a day or two, grant them the space. And make sure you have the same space. It is important to feel safe and secure.
Overall, it is important that the two of you find your own pace and momentum. Every individual is different and has different needs. It is important that the two of you talk about what makes you comfortable and set your priorities. There is no one way to make it work and most importantly, where there is will there is a way.
