Weathering the storm: How to bounce back after bad times

Two sad women sorry for each otherBY ANNA PULLEY

My partner and I have been together for four year and we went through a bit of a rough patch (something pretty drastic and difficult in our lives happened that sent us into damage control and survival mode) about two years ago. Things are better now but I find that we’re still not connecting like we used to. We love each other a lot but our intimacy/sex life is really strained and awkward. It seems like we just can’t seem to get it to click anymore. How do couples bounce back after prolonged difficult times? How do you find a new normal? What if our sex life never resembles something that I’m happy with? How do you decide if you’re willing to sacrifice that to stay with someone you love?
