Is your loved one going through a challenging time?
Quite often the forgotten people are those who are watching their loved one go through a challenging time and not have the understanding or support to cope with it. Disturbingly, there’s a high number of relationships worldwide that bite the dust within a year of an athlete retiring from their sport.
The athlete carries guilt for feeling down and needing space having been away for so long and the families have been waiting for their father/husband/wife etc to return for so long and what they get is vastly different to what they had imagined.
If people in this situation cant get support or seek answers to what is going in then the relationship will suffer badly and can ignite a new chain of events in an already highly unstable environment for all parties.
In this part of the site we will share family stories and bring in expert opinion to help families and relationships through what is a challenging period.
