Life After COVID-19: Rebuilding and Strengthening Your Relationships

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a life-altering experience. It’s been a test of our patience, fortitude, and resiliency, and it’s had a profound impact on how we work, go to school, and interact with others. Spending months or even a year in close quarters with the same people while going the same amount of time without being able to see others at all has been an important lesson on how important relationships are and how they contribute to our wellbeing.

Over the past year, many relationships have changed; some have been strengthened, while others have been pushed to their limits under the stress of living during a pandemic. As we start to build hope and anticipation for the future, there’s no better time than the present to reflect on the connection you have with the people in your life. Whether your ultimate goal is to strengthen your marriage, grow closer to friends or family members, or overcome the emotional scars that are the result of an unhealthy or abusive relationship, Blair Wellness Group can help.

Dr. Cassidy Blair is a highly regarded licensed clinical psychologist and relationship psychologist in Los Angeles who provides treatment and counseling to those in need. Keep reading for tips on how to strengthen and rebuild your relationships, and if you’re interested in talking with someone who can help, call Blair Wellness Group to schedule an appointment.

Rebuilding Your Bond

After over a year of dealing with stress, uncertainty, and a lack of normalcy, even the most healthy relationships can come under pressure. If you and your significant other aren’t feeling as close as you were pre-pandemic, don’t worry — try to understand that it’s been a difficult time for everyone and acknowledge that it may take time to rebuild your connection.

If you’ve been living in close quarters for the last year, the best thing to do might be to first take some time for yourself. Too much togetherness can sometimes create emotional distance. There’s truth in the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

Another way to rebuild your bond is to make an effort to plan time alone where you can leave the world behind you and just focus on each other. Whether you plan a romantic date night, a walk in the park, or something as simple as enjoying take out while sitting in the car, making time for each other is of the utmost importance.

Addressing Unhealthy Relationships

Some relationships are much more complicated and require more than just a weekly date night to fix. If you’re in a relationship with someone who is abusive, struggling with an addiction, or you’ve just grown apart and are contemplating divorce, you might feel as though your life will still be in a state of turmoil even when the pandemic is behind you.

Managing a difficult or troublesome relationship can be hard to do on your own. If you’ve already tried to work together on your issues, depending on your situation, you might benefit from individual or couples counseling. If your relationship is beyond repair, a psychologist can help you process your feelings and work toward a happier and more fulfilling life.
