We’ve all recently seen the turbulent transactions Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian have dealt with over the past few weeks, with a clear indication that he is in a weird and difficult place now. This was later confirmed when The Kardashians took to their self-titled TV Series to address the situation. She explained how Tristan suffers from something that she can’t put her finger on and how, due to this, his actions can be hugely misunderstood.
Despite some of the babi…comments that Tristan has made, Khloe has stood in solidarity with Tristan and addressed the importance of supporting loved ones that suffer from issues that even they can’t spin in in their favor in the news.
The NBA athlete has a long history of cheating. He was accused of being unfaithful with close family friend of the Kardashians, Jordyn Woods, in 2018 while the reality star was pregnant. The couple first split in 2019. After reuniting in late 2020, Instagram model Sydney Chase revealed in April that he allegedly cheated on Kardashian again in January as they were working things out.
Here’s how you can offer support to your partner or loved one that potentially has bipolar disorder.
Research and Learn
One of the most important things you can do if your partner has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder is to do lots of research to understand some of the symptoms of the illness. The more you know, the easier it will be to recognize certain behaviors and deal with them in the best way possible.
Have Honest, Open Conversations
Show your support through honest and open communication. Whether your loved one is having a bad day or is particularly struggling with their symptoms, allow them to open up to you and be honest about how they’re truly feeling. Patience is essential, and offering ways to help them will be incredibly appreciated. The more open you are, the more likely they will come to you for support and advice in the future as they will feel comfortable enough to do so.
Encourage Them To Get Help
No matter how supportive and understanding you are, sometimes professional help is needed. Try to encourage your loved one to seek advice from their doctor to see if there is anything they can do to manage their symptoms. You shouldn’t wait for things to get worse before you take action.
