Your Relationship Issues Were There Before Covid
Your Relationship Issues Were There Before Covid with Robin Newman, LCSW in Long Island
So, one of the things that I am finding ‘post-covid’ now that things are opening up more is people coming in individually, not as a couple, to talk about the disillusionment of their relationship and how Covid has put their relationship over the top.
The first thing I say to them is, I need you to check in with yourself, because as much as I do understand that Covid has put your relationship over the top, I’m going to invite you to consider that these issues were all there before covid.
Being locked in with your significant other / wife / husband / girlfriend / boyfriend / partner is going to bring out the ugly stuff because there is no exit.
There’s some healthy exits and there are some unhealthy exits.
- Drinking Too Much
- Working Too Much
- Eating Too Much
- Creating Space For Yourself
- Having A Balanced Life
I try to explain to people that maybe they need to look inward at what their accountability is in the relationship process and what’s happening. How they have fed into ‘the challenge’ that’s occurring in the relationship and we go from there.
