HOW DO YOU SUPPORT YOUR SPOUSE AT THIS TIME IF THEY WITHDRAW DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?
If your spouse is an entrepreneur their behavior right now might be making you very worried and uncomfortable. When I would face a crisis in my business I would often self isolate, be very quiet and bunker down, rebuffing offers of help.
This was very concerning for my family who wanted to support me. What was going on with me? Firstly, that energy withdrawal you feel is real, I would close down my heart to control my fear.
Secondly, the reason I went silent was b/c I was playing a deadly game of chess with an invisible opponent. I needed to focus!
Thirdly, I would rebuff talk of the business and help because I needed a break, my family was a refuge, from crippling stress. How can you help?
💓 Keep routine and normality going 💓 Don’t take it personally 💓 Don’t panic 💓 Monitor their mental health and step in where necessary 💓 Give lots of hugs 💓 Remind your partner of their talent 💓 Let your partner know you have their back Is this fair on you? Not at all! Make sure YOU get support from friends and family and demand a nice holiday at the end of all this crap 💩 LOL.
