8 Ways to Face Life Positively If You are Infertile
Infertility may be one of the biggest challenges faced by a couple. While it is very emotionally disturbing, staying positive and happy is important for the relationship as well as for your individual lives ahead. Here are some ways to face life positively if you are infertile.
1. Stop criticizing yourself
There may be a little voice in your head or so many other voices outside that keep talking about the problem and what you did or did not do about. But those are not the ones you should be listening to. Negative thought patterns can consume you into a depressed state. Infertility is not an individual’s problem. So, the first thing to do is stop criticizing yourself.
2. Answer inappropriate questions appropriately
Sometimes, even well-meaning friends can commit the mistake of asking wrong questions at the wrong time. It is neither right in succumbing to a shell nor retaliating inappropriately. Instead address those questions in a relaxed and mature manner.
3. Have fun with your husband
Some childless couples commit the mistake of distancing from each other. Instead, try bridging the gap with your partner and notice the difference. Children are most definitely work and even manage to bring down quality time you spend with your partner. So, treat this as an opportunity to build a beautiful and happy relationship with your partner.
4. Look out for opportunities
With no children around, you have the luxury of doing anything you want. You can backpack through Africa without being worried on what to feed your children or about safety. Similarly, make use of the innumerable opportunities life can give you and your spouse.
