We are going through a period where “pausing and staying away” in every sense of the term comes as a protection and a solution to risks that we can no longer control. Strange but true, we have to stay away from people, the places we spend most of our time daily, from our jobs, even … from our own dreams.
Managing a crisis forces us to make difficult decisions.
In this new reality, many couples are forced to postpone their therapeutic plan and find themselves in a difficult waiting period. A spontaneous question would be: would not such a demanding adjustment bring discomfort, anger or even anxiety for the future?
The answer is no.
Humans are made to react to obstacles and always look for solutions and ways to overcome them. Through these times, their patience is tested. Patience. Such a magic concept and so needed in times like these.
And remember. Just as nature always patiently finds ways to recuperate, we also need to patiently find the next safe steps in faith and with personal care.
Above all, let’s focus on our most valuable asset at the moment; ourselves. Let’s talk about love. Let’s take good care of ourselves, our partner, and our life. Let’s also take an honest look at our strength and endurance so that we may be more emotionally present and mature now and in the years to come
