3 Ways Transition Impacts Our Relationships

Posted on

When you’re planning a family move forward, it can be scary to think about how other people will react. Do they like the new location? Will they start asking us questions about our current living conditions? How long will we have to spend our time together? What would happen if I had my own place close by? You may have similar thoughts. Here are three ways that a change in relocation can affect our relationships.

1. It can make you feel less attached to your partner

When you move your entire family to another house due to some significant life event, you find yourself spending more and more time apart from your spouse. This causes them to become slightly distant from each other as well. In a way, this is normal for any relationship. Everyone needs friends and partners who can share with them about their day-to-day experiences. If two partners are not able to share these things with one another, then it can cause feelings of loneliness and boredom. If you want to keep close contact, even after moving on, it is okay to still be in touch. However, keep in mind how much your relationship has changed in such a small amount of time. Make sure you are both happy with your changes by focusing on what your connection is worth.

2. It can cause you to fall out with your roommate

Being away from home for years could mean you grow closer as a person, or it can cause you to get bored of each other if you stay in the same dorm. Either way, this could occur if you don’t see each other often enough. At first, it does seem quite common, but just because you’re together all the time doesn’t mean that your relationship will stay stable. Be open to the changes in your roommate and partner’s behavior. Sometimes, moving to an entirely different apartment can also cause issues between your roommates. Are you comfortable with your roommate’s attitude? Does he/she bring up uncomfortable topics? Have you ever gotten into arguments with him/her over how little sleep you’re getting? Being put off by someone else’s bad temper may hurt your feelings, especially if he/she always interrupts your conversations with his/her opinions. This type of behaviour may also happen if your partner seems stressed or depressed. They may talk about something completely unrelated to your situation or say rude comments to you which end up hurting your feelings. The best thing to do is to try and see how much your coworkers or someone else you interact with are affecting your relationship. If you can recognize when your roommate’s attitude towards you is negative, you should take steps to correct it as soon as possible.

3. Relationship deterioration

There is nothing worse than feeling like you don’t have anyone in your life because nothing is going right. Maybe you’ve been married before and then you just decide it isn’t working out for you anymore. Or maybe it’s just some other relationship of yours that is no longer working out. Whatever the reason might be, you’ll probably want to make yourself the priority of your life after moving on. When your parents moved on to college, my sister and I were left behind. We were not allowed to attend school parties for anyone else but ourselves. I did everything she needed to do to prove we were worthy and to support her until graduation day. She was never able to find a new boyfriend and this affected the quality of our relationship tremendously. We both became lonely and depressed, and this caused me to lose interest in dating again. After moving on, we went through many struggles trying to make it work, and the time spent apart only worsened our situation. Every time we had a date, the thought of having to go places by ourselves gave us anxiety. One day, while taking my dog for a walk, a man came to see me talking to myself in his car. Once he saw me sitting in front of the window, he asked if he could sit in my backseat and hold my leg. My reaction was priceless and it made me realize how much that guy meant to me. As the conversation got deeper, he told me he loved me and wanted to marry me. I took this leap of faith very lightly, but I couldn’t stop thinking about our shared history and future. When I finally did something brave enough, I asked him to drive us home and we ended up discussing marriage. The next day at class, I was so excited to receive texts from my mom and father talking about starting a family. I felt like I needed permission from them. Even though our parents didn’t have kids, they encouraged us to start families of our own without hesitation. Eventually, my parents agreed that we could have children and decided that we would continue to focus on them in adulthood. That kind of helped us to get to where we are now—a happier couple. Now that we are married, we live in New Jersey so we don’t have the luxury of time to travel as much anymore. There’s a lot more pressure and stress on us. Although we work together as a team, that doesn’t mean things can run smoothly like the past few years. At times we come across each other’s point of views or opinions and we either have a tough conversation or disagree with one another. But because we feel so connected and invested in our child and future, we push the issue aside and start looking toward the future as our goal. We try to push each other to focus on what we want to accomplish. We’ll try to stay positive without really wanting anything in return to our “adult” selves. Our family has grown and become better than it used to be and we have a strong sense of pride in providing our own future for our daughter and son-in-law. We have gone through a lot and we just want to be happy with each other and help our daughter grow up.

All parents change after time as much as their children or grandchildren. Your emotions are bound to change when you grow older. To be prepared and mentally prepare for every possible outcome will allow you to avoid being disappointed when someone else does not have an understanding and understanding of your concerns. Don’t let these reasons to dislike your moving on get in the way of making any effort to be open minded and understanding towards others. By doing so, you will be able to develop trust and respect—all positive qualities in a healthy relationship!
