Relationships are not a bed of roses. There are endless challenges we face in a relationship. The way we handle these obstacles will make or break us. We need to be careful when it comes to dealing with a loss in a relationship.
Here are things to think about if you and your partner have endured a tragedy.
1. We handle tragedy in different ways
Partners must know that we handle tough times in different ways. The way one person deals with difficulties in a love affair might not be the same. Both partners must streamline things if they want to make their relationship work at the end of the day.
2. There is no deadline for grieving
The period it takes to grief differs from one person to another. Never assume that someone is taking too long to grief. We all have differences and you must be ready to understand them when you decide to date, someone.
3. How to provide support for your partner to lean on
You need to know that you are the source of your partner’s strength. Make sure you defend your partner all the time. A loving partner will provide a shoulder for you to lean on when things are not working. Find out how you can support the man or woman in your life when things seem not to work in your favor.
