Juggling Work and Love

This is another thing that couples usually discuss about or go through. We all need to work one day in order to stay alive or do whatever we want. Working is a necessity. Another thing that most people, including myself, consider necessary is having a love life. The issue comes when the two start clashing.


This has been a constant pain in my relationship. My partner complains that I never have time for her or that her love language is quality time. We were okay at the start with sweet messages but as time went on, my partner felt like I wasn’t giving enough attention to her. I can’t blame her, but I also don’t feel like I am at fault either. 


The thing is, no one is to blame. We all have valid feelings. It’s all about understanding each other. There are also ways to help with this issue. We’ll be going over some of the better known solutions.


Setting Boundaries: The Kingdom’s First Line of Defense

Imagine your work and your relationship as two separate kingdoms, each with its own castle and drawbridge. Now, in order to maintain peace in this enchanted realm, you need to set some healthy boundaries so these two worlds don’t collide like clumsy dragons in mid-flight.


Picture this: It’s quitting time at the office, and you’ve got your trusty briefcase in hand. Your partner awaits you at home, expecting your arrival like a knight in shining armor. So, be like a steadfast medieval knight, and honor your commitment to leave work behind when it’s time to clock out. Let your partner know that when you’re off work, you’re all theirs to cherish and adore.


Now, when you’re enjoying those precious off-work days, don’t let the pesky dragons of pending tasks and non-urgent matters disrupt your magical bonding time. Let those tasks slumber in their dungeons until you’re ready to face them. Remember, a well-rested knight is a more efficient knight!


And if the need arises to alter your schedule due to work-related quests, don’t forget to communicate with your partner. After all, even knights need to send a raven when their plans change.


Creating Time for Each Other: The Secret Potion of Love

In this enchanted world, time is the most valuable treasure. To maintain the balance between work and relationships, you must ensure that your love life flourishes like a blooming garden. Don’t squander your precious spare moments on work-related spells and enchantments. Instead, seize the opportunity to embark on magical adventures with your partner.


By setting aside time for each other, you cast a powerful spell that demonstrates your devotion. Your partner will feel like the enchanted princess or prince of your heart, and no amount of work-induced wizardry can come between you two.


Let’s not forget that your partner also has a career path to tread. While you might be busy conquering your own quests, take a moment to inquire about your partner’s adventures in the realm of work. Offer your support, just like a trusty squire aiding a knight on their noble quest. Show them that you’re their biggest fan, cheering from the sidelines as they vanquish their professional dragons.


Decisions and Apologies: The Magic of Communication

In this land of love and work, it’s essential to make decisions as a team. When the weight of work bears down upon you, don’t accidentally leave your partner in the dark about important matters. Instead, involve them in discussions and let their voice be heard, for they are your most trusted advisor in matters of the heart.


And here’s a powerful spell for maintaining harmony: learning to apologize and forgive. Sometimes, the demands of your noble duties may clash with your relationship commitments, causing storms on the horizon. When your partner expresses their concerns, don’t raise your magical shield of defense. Instead, offer a sincere apology and seek to make amends. Remember, it’s the potion of understanding and forgiveness that mends even the deepest wounds.


Spending Special Moments: The Enchanted Getaways

What’s an epic tale without some grand adventures? Plan a vacation to a faraway land where work emails can’t reach you. Imagine you and your partner on a secluded island, basking in the warm glow of the sun, and sipping on love potions. Vacations are like the treasure chests of relationships, filled with precious memories waiting to be discovered.


But wait, there’s more! Add some enchantment to your love story with romantic date nights. Picture a candlelit dinner under the starry sky, or a moonlit stroll through the mystical woods. These moments make your partner feel like the protagonist of a fairy tale, and you, their valiant knight.


Setting Goals Together: The Quest for Love and Success

In this magical realm, setting goals together is the key to a prosperous kingdom. Just like two knights joining forces to defeat a menacing dragon, you and your partner can conquer the challenges of life by setting and pursuing your dreams as a team. Your relationship goals are the treasure map, leading you to the hidden gems of shared accomplishments and happiness.


But don’t just take our word for it! Akuamoah-Boateng Clara, a wise scholar from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, embarked on a noble quest to study how female staff at the College of Distance Education balanced work, family, and personal life. Her research uncovered secrets and strategies that can help anyone maintain equilibrium in this whimsical land.



Always remember that work is important but spending quality time with your bae is also important. Talk to them, set your boundaries, make plans, and keep understanding how each other feels. This is a completely normal thing with couples and a lot of them pushed through against this and are living happily ever after. I believe that my relationship with my partner will also go all the way to the end and you should believe yours will too!
