Earlier I blogged about the value of social support in lasting relationships. In that post I talked about the value of giving support and the value of appreciating the support you receive. In an upcoming blog post I will describe invisible support, which is basically providing support to your partner without their awareness. Recent research has shown that the support we provide to our partners can be more beneficial if they are not aware that we provided it. Of course, providing support without our partner’s awareness is not always easy. So in the post, I describe a couple of ways to structure the conversation that research has found useful.
So, please look out for that post. I have my fingers crossed that you find it helpful.
