Cupid’s Advice:

With the economic downturn, times are hard. If your partner is facing troubles either at work or in their personal life, it’s time for you to be strong for them. Here are some ways to stand by your partner when things get tough:

1. Listen: Sometimes the best thing you can do for someone in trouble is to listen. Be their shoulder to cry on as they pick themselves back up.

2. Move forward: Don’t dwell on the past or allow your partner to do so. No matter how bad things get, life goes on.

3. Remember nothing lasts forever: When you’re going through a hard time, it often seems like it will never end. Keep reminding your partner and yourself that it’s always darkest before the dawn.
