Confronting Self-Sabotage

How well do you know your partner?

What are some the issues that have affected relationships during the pandemic?

How well do you know your partner? Many of us have assumptions about our partners based on limited experience, so spending so much ‘alone time’ together forces us to recognize who we are and who are partners are. During the lockdowns many couples discovered that living together was not quite as easy as it seemed. The lockdowns forced us to face mortality, one another and ourselves.

With the fear factor notched up to a solid 8 [maybe 9], our stress levels were primed to test our mettle. With stress levels so high, and maintaining the tension for so long, our deepest selves emerged – whether we wanted it to or not. Because time hasn’t been taken long-term to nurture our partners or ourselves, this can create issues. The same kinds of things come up when we retire. If we have been mainly focused on the job and day to day tasks, we are often left unprepared to live fully in our relationship, and life in general.

This period of time was a good test of the staying power of our relationships. Why? Because all lives encounter stress. Knowing how you and your partner deal with this, both as individuals and together, is essential in truly building a lasting relationship.

Like it or not, we all deal with trauma at some point in our lives? Does your partner support you? You them? Can you seek help together, or does your partner prefer to ‘keep their head down’ and ‘just get through it’ as if things will simply adjust on their own? Are you the one who prefers to just move through these times? Not processing or healing? Simply ignoring or suppressing your emotions?

Maybe one of you doesn’t even know how to identify what you are feeling. Unfortunately, this is very common, particularly among men. This is because, in many cultures, our boys are taught to suppress instead of express. This can cripple them emotionally and keep them from having the deeply loving partnerships they want, need and deserve. Don’t be mistaken, women are not immune to this type of issue, it is simply more prevalent in boys.

These times of stress and trauma are ripe for self-discovery and healing. Seize the opportunity to create a more intimate relationship with your partner, to become healthier and closer to the ones you love. Remember - Asking for help is a sign of strength and commitment. None of us walk this life alone, we are not meant to.

How do you know the kind of help you need? Honestly, it may take more than one try to find the right fit. You may work best with a Coach or Therapist. You may want to work together with your partner, but make sure that you are working as individuals also. In the end, it’s more about the individual you select to work with, than just the style of help you are receiving.
