These are certainly unsettling times with this outbreak of Covid 19.
Remember it is a flu – most of us have had at some stage in our life, pretty yuk for sure but we recovered.
It’s vital as couple we turn towards each other. Your mate will have their unique point of view. It may not be yours.
This is the time to give ourselves a bit of a free pass on stress.
Be gentle, come together and the world can heal.
Help your spouse, your friends, family and community. This shifts our self focus.
As Brene Brown said we need not contract with social distancing and self isolation.
Connection to others is the antidote.
If we can’t visit, we can pick up the phone, download an app, reach out.
Get in touch, tell someone you care, they need you.
I an on a local connection App. So touching to see people offering a helping hand to neighbours like running errands, dropping groceries for those in need.
Just as we saw when Australia was a bushfire inferno. Support, kindness and love abound.
Please let’s keep this spirit.
At Marriage Works we are open. Being a home office, there’s no large crowds and therefore less risk.
However we are happy to offer you the option of Telehealth, phone, or Online therapy. Easy for couples we can guide you how to set this up.
The Aljazeera news headline is heartening:
“In China, life returning to normal as coronavirus outbreak slows.”
Allow this to give you hope. We are likely to see a similar pattern of recovery.
We will be OK.
