Upsets in a partner’s life aren’t the wacky occurrences they once were; if anything, they’ve become routine which means it’s time for a sit down talk. You can’t continue living like the rug is going to be pulled out from under you any minute. Either you get a new rug or jettison it all together. It’s true that your partner doesn’t have much control over what’s happening right now, but they do have final say when it comes to themselves. They can set boundaries, come up with another plan, or even disengage. Nothing’s unheard of when it keeps repeating itself which makes farfetched notions possible.
