Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone faces hard times or inner battles that they struggle to face. Sometimes it can be hard to share parts of yourself with the world. Having a partner who supports you when you’re struggling can mean everything. Cupid has some advice on ways to support your partner through tough times:

1. Let them know they’re appreciated: We can’t always solve problems for our partners, even if we would love nothing more than to wash away their worries. It’s important to take steps to make them feel safe home with you; they know they are loved and you are their safe haven. Tell them how you appreciate them, and that you value them and their place in your family.

2. Don’t be critical: If your partner is having a hard time they likely feel like they are being criticized by the world around them. Be the opposite for them. Listen and be supportive but be sure not to take over the conversation. Ask them open-ended questions and really listen to what they have to say without being critical or judging them. They need to be able to lean on you just as you would if the roles were reversed.

3. Remind them to have fun: Life can be stressful and we all face challenges from time to time. When life has your partner feeling down remind them that it can also be fun. Take them out for a night on the town, enjoy a night together under the stars, whatever the two of you enjoy doing together.
