EraseRestart, 4th issue: Talking about it with a Partner

EraseRestart, 4th issue: Talking about it with a partner 🖤 . Hi everyone! The fourth issue of @eraserestart is here, recommending playing with open cards when in a relationship. Similarly to the third issue (“Talking about it with friends & family”), it’d be safe to state that a romantic partner can play a positive role in the life of someone who’s struggling with their mental health. That being said, an unhealthy relationship can have the exact opposite effect and impact the lives and mental wellbeing of both people involved. Everyone comes with their own baggage, that’s why communication and understanding are essential when in a relationship. Due to the instability of our times and what we’ve been taught by older generations, we tend to always be in the lookout for something better – a better house, job, better friends, better partners. This attitude leads to a fear of commitment inextricably linked to the fear of missing out. Even when in a relationship, we might find ourselves questioning our choices – a frustration that we might project to our partner by sending them mixed signals of what we want. Being open about our anxieties and other struggles can only help to build relationships that are long-lasting and meaningful. What if we’re missing out on something important, exactly by striving for the perfect life? In all cases, perhaps we need to relearn how to talk to each other and redefine our idea of “trouble”. Perhaps, we all need to walk the line between knowing our limits and not being selfish when someone’s calling for help. Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll enjoy scrolling through this issue, SP 🌝✨
