Amazing Ways to Be A Supportive Partner

By March 13, 2020

There is nothing more that you need to do as a partner than be supportive. You are together, a pair, a twosome: your partnership is that which is filled with love and understanding, kindness, and fun. What makes for support for one couple will not be the same for another. The main idea is that through your love, you lean on each other when you need to, and you provide a shoulder to cry on when they need you. 

Not only do you have to provide long-term support, but you also have to consider the type of support that you can offer each other day to day. There are always times you may need to go above and beyond for your partner, just as there are times you need to seek outside help if you cannot provide the support that they need. Sometimes, partner support counselling can be everything that you both need, and this is the type of support that can be invaluable. Below, we’ve put together some of the ways that you can be a supportive partner.

  • Always check in on your partner, even if it’s to ask if they ate that day. The small things can really make a massive difference in the way that you interact with each other. Those little interactions throughout the day can help your partner to feel secure in the knowledge that you care about their general wellbeing.
  • Over time, you’ll get to know what makes your partner tick, and when you do, you will get to know what they need from you to feel supported. Sometimes simply asking them what you can do when they’re in need can be everything. Ask what they’d like and how you can make them feel good. If you know what will make them feel happy and secure, you will be able to deliver that. 
  • Living with stress is the hardest thing that you could do, so creating a stress-free environment for your partner can be the kindest thing that you do for them. You know what will make them feel calm, from running a hot bath for them when they come in from work to ensuring that they have time with you just to be a couple. Support comes in so many ways, and sometimes you just need to let them know that you are there for them.
  • All you have to do to be supportive sometimes is sit and listen. Let them vent to you and make them feel okay with their venting. You are their safe place, and sometimes, you need just to be quiet and listen to what they have to say. They don't always need you to jump in with a fix, not when being present is more than enough.
  • Lastly, remind them that you love them. Sometimes, counselling can be fantastic for a couple, and if you ensure that you are working together, you can make counselling the essential thing that you do together. Tell them you love them every day!
