We’ve all been through a lot this year. Families have been called upon to go to whole new levels of support for one another as changing alert levels have compromised our ability to get out and socialise. We’ve relied on our bubble mates, which has been beautiful in lots of ways, but testing in others!
Many of us are feeling that our relationships with our nearest and dearest have been strained and drained. Tolerance may be out the window and patience at an all-time low. Fear not, this is a perfectly understandable outcome given the circumstances. It is a good indicator, however, that some focus on strengthening our tired and tested relationships could be hugely beneficial right now. For partnerships, for parents and for siblings.
