Be your own best friend: give yourself the same level of care, understanding and support that you would to your best friend.

Be kind to yourself and your partner: you will deal with the situation in different ways, so it's important to work together, not against each other.

Do everything you can to lead a fulfilling life and don't put your life on hold.

Be proactive about socialising: make a conscious effort to plan fun things and book time with friends.

Gather the biggest possible support group around you: talk to family, friends or even colleagues and tell them what you need from them. Find a support group on the internet or in person, where you can talk to other people going through the same thing.
