2020 has been one hell of a year for many of us financially, mentally, physically, and socially. Since the pandemic, we have learned to cope with this thing called life, whether we wanted to. It kind of just slapped us in the face and forced us to go through things that we clearly were not prepared for.
Along with practicing social distancing and spending more time at home, many of us have spent more time with our significant other than normal. Is that a bad thing? I guess it depends on who you ask. Before the pandemic, we had the opportunity to miss our significant other whether we were at work, hanging out, running errands, etc. The point is, many had that time apart.
Now, couples are spending more and more time together. They are getting to know their significant other even more. For some couples, this is a great thing. For others, they are starting to pay more attention to what is really going on within their relationship.
It seems like more couples are beginning to realize how unhappy they are in their situation, couples are finding out their mate is cheating, and some are even using this time to reconcile. Regardless, everyone is taking the opportunity to figure out what makes them happy, whether in a relationship or single.
If this pandemic has taught anyone anything, it’s to appreciate life and don’t take it for granted. If the pandemic has brought you closer to your mate, keep it going. Take this time to communicate more, laugh, and enjoy one another’s company. But, still give each other space. You don’t want to smother them.
If you are unhappy, communicate how you feel with your mate. Let them know what you are thinking and feeling. You may be both feeling the same way. But you have to communicate.
The pandemic has been full of ups and downs, but most importantly, it has shown everyone that we only get one life to live. We need to live and appreciate every moment. Don’t stay somewhere that makes you feel unhappy or unappreciated.
Let’s go into 2021 with a different mindset. Think about how you were feeling this year and use it as a guide to help you live even better in the new year,
