Multi tasking is sometimes not a very easy thing to do and this is why learning how to juggle your relationship with daily living is necessary.
Often times a lot of people take some things for granted when they are in a relationship which sometimes leads to a meltdown of that relationship.
Who says you cannot juggle your relationship with everything else you do? Who says you cannot have time for both your work and your partner?
Many people have lost people they love simply because they failed to allocate time for them?
Questions that come to mind when I think about this are:
- Why be in a relationship if you won’t have the time for it?
- Is your work more important than the person you love or is he or she as important as your work?
For all those trying to figure out how to cope with both, here are some ways you can juggle your relationship with everyday living.
Set time aside:
This is one of the ways you can juggle your relationship with your work. If you really think about it, you will notice that time is never enough for anyone and as time flies, you wished it could stand still.
So also it is with one’s work or job, if you do not create time to spend with your loved one, you will be so consumed with work and have no time for anything else.
Setting time aside could be done on a Sunday evening or Saturday afternoon depending on which is most convenient. It doesn’t matter how long you spend with him or her but the effort you put into doing this.
See the other person as important:
Do you know that it is very possible to be occupied with other things and easily neglect the person that you love? In order to juggle your relationship with other things you do, let the other person you love be placed highly in your heart so you never forget them.
If you can see the other person as important as the other things you do, then it might not be so hard handling all these aspects of your life.
Make communication a point of duty:
Always have it at the back of your mind that no matter how busy you are, you will always reach out to him or her. This not only shows that you are taking responsibility for him or her but that you are able to keep him or her close to you irrespective of the kind of work you do.
During your lunch break, sending a text, a ping, or a brief phone call is all you really need to do which would even help you cool off before going back to work.
One very important aspect of communication is keeping the other person abreast of your goings because it is possible you forget about him or her because of all you have to do.
So in order to safe guard your relationship, keep him or her informed so they understand what you are doing and do not unnecessarily misinterpret things.
Have a schedule:
Another way to juggle your relationship with everyday life is to have a schedule and having a schedule helps you plan well so your life can be organised.
Work is important but it is important you set a schedule for the other important things you need to do.
This is because if you do not set a schedule, just one thing can over ride all others. It would interest you to know that some people leave the office and still take work home thereby neglecting some other vital things they need to do.
Do not transfer aggression:
Some people tend to transfer work aggression onto their partners which is not really nice. In as much as you are busy, do not let your work affect your relationship. Even though it may be hard to separate both of them, learn to draw the line.
So these are some of the ways to juggle your relationship with other things you must do.
