Tips for Couples on Thriving in Uncertain Times

Committing to a long-term relationship with your partner means promising to stay by their side through uncertain times. It can be tempting to walk out the door when things get hard, but if you can resist the urge to give up, you can walk through the storm together and become a truly resilient couple.

Maybe your partner is supporting you through a difficult time at work, maybe you’re trying to help your partner process a loss, or maybe you’re just finding general dissatisfaction with your life now that restrictions are lifting. Counselor and life coach Shasta Hickman has gathered some illuminating resources that will help you embrace your “new normal” as a couple and learn to thrive again.
