Love supports in difficult situations, gives strength to care for loved ones, and gives a sense of stability. However, love itself needs support – especially at the time of forced separation. Experts from the Institute for Cognitive Modeling and the online platform “Tell Me” answered how to save feelings. We publish advice from psychologists.
Difficulties can arise due to the fact that in times of severe stress feelings are no longer in the first place, they will wait. It seems that now it is more important to fight, volunteer, “be useful” to others, work, adjust to life in a new place and so on.
Awareness of how important partners are to each other can counteract the feeling of devastation. You need to use in communication with your partner “their” words and nicknames that can recall the warm moments of life together. Also, create a special ritual of conversations: tell each other the details of daily affairs, share successes and achievements, talk and write about your own feelings.
Don’t forget to listen to your partner and react calmly to his emotional outbursts. Share your dreams of joint plans. Think of forced separation as a reason to be sad, because the main thing is trust between partners.
