3 Steps to Bring You and Your Partner Closer After a Tough Period
For many people, love is one of the most important things in life. It’s easy to see why, too. A loved one can give you companionship, help prevent loneliness and support you through some of life’s toughest times.
But, when we experience these tough times, strains can appear in our relationships. This can happen in even the longest relationships as, although the divorce rate around the world is dropping, it’s still almost 40% in America, according to Time Magazine.
If you feel like your relationship needs some work after a stressful period, then there’s no need to worry, as there are three simple ways you can bring you and your partner closer together.
Increase the Positive Rather Than Reducing the Negative
When you reach an obstacle in your relationship, it can be easy to focus on the negatives and try to ‘fix things’. But, changing people doesn’t work as studies show 69% of a couple’s problems are perpetual.
So, rather than focusing on the bad things you’d change, instead double down on the things that make you happy. If date night is the highlight of your week, why not have two dates with your partner a week instead?
When we hit a troubled period in our lives or relationships, we often tend to close off from our partners. However, your partner is there as a support structure, so you need to be open and honest.
By sharing emotional and personal information, you promote powerful feelings of connection. So, at the end of each day, be sure to ask your partner about their day. However, don’t just ask: listen and celebrate their successes.
If things are going well and you celebrate your partner’s successes sincerely, you’re strengthening your relationship, putting it on better ground in case something goes wrong at a later date.
Harmonize Your Spiritual Connection
People are drawn together through shared beliefs, energies and experiences. But, over time, beliefs can change or evolve due to circumstances or events, so it’s important to discuss your beliefs regularly and realign them.
For this reason, taking part in joint spiritual activities can be helpful in aligning your perspectives and making you feel like you’re ‘on the same page’.
You may like to take long walks together with the dog or practice meditation, but if time is short, then consider alternatives. You could try yoga, or you could seek guidance and fulfilment in the form of a Psychic reading. If you’re short on time, this is a good option. Readings can be done over the phone, with many Psychic Readers at TheCircle believing this form of communication provides a unique and focused connection that helps them hone their gift.
Overall, you should ensure that the activity you choose aligns with the time you have available. Sessions where you work on your spiritual connection will help cleanse your spirit and revitalize your bond, so short and regular sessions are better than long, sporadic ones.
By following these three key points, you can bring a sense of enlightenment to your relationship, creating empathy and compassion while also improving your communication. This doesn’t mean you’ll never argue or disagree, but it means you’ll be open and honest with each other, so you can overcome problems together when they arise.
