But that will worsen the matter instead of making things better. But, Cury Newman advised that you should be diminished by those attitudes and comments from your partner.
Just remember that what your partner is going through is the reason for the behavior. Remain resolute and focus on your goals to help your spouse come out of the anxiety.
Be positive and mind the words you use on him/her at a particular time. Use the affirmative and encouraging word. More importantly, remain positive until the situation is under control.
7) Get Your Boundaries Right:-
As you are trying to help your spouse, you must set your boundaries too. Your Boundaries will comprise all you intend to do as well as what you won’t do as you are helping out.
These boundaries will help you protect your emotional and physical needs in your relationship.
It all depends on you, however, make sure that all your boundaries will not make things worse but better.
8) Always Plan Something Interesting Whenever You See Each Other:-
This may sound ludicrous, but that’s one of my favorite steps to dealing with a separation anxiety spouse. The trick is to make any of your reunions memorable.
Make sure any of your reunions call for celebration. That means instead of being obsessed about your time apart, plan something interesting for the reunion.
You can prepare lunch for them too, and take them to a special place that will help them recover fast. If you know what your spouse like, get them as reunion gifts for her.
9) Keep Trying And Don’t Give Up:-
If you want to help your spouse get better, you must be focused. Many things will want to discourage you, so when you give up soon your spouse won’t get better
So be resilient, and focused, and keep doing all you need to do to help by the grace of God your better half will get better.
I hope you have learned how you can help your separation anxiety spouse. If not read the post again to know how.
Remember that your partner doesn’t know what they are going through, therefore you should be diplomatic about how you help to avoid complications.
Your best step should be to take them to a therapist. The therapist knows what to do to help.
