What are the signs your broken relationship is still fixable?
You’re still a team
Regardless of who caused turning the romantic relationship to sour, both partners need to work on mending it. It isn’t acceptable in this partnership.
Awareness of the issue
Both parties have a responsibility for how they’re feeling and what is causing them discomfort, so awareness needs to be increased if there are problems that haven’t been discussed or identified yet.
You both take responsibility
Look at all contributing factors on both sides. If one person is fixed with what they did wrong and the other isn’t, it will not work out.
You’re motivated to fix it
The partner that wants to change things needs a passion for love in their heart- so much so that they’ll do anything necessary to make changes.
You haven’t lost that old lovin’ feeling
Long term relationships sometimes lead to boredom, but if you and your partner still love each other, it’s worth putting in the time to make things better.
You stop blaming your partner for all of your problems
There are always two sides, and you’re not blameless about how the relationship has gone- so take a look at what you can do to help fix what isn’t working.
You have open communication with each other
Honest communication is very important in any relationship, and it’s vital to repairing a broken one.
You completely let go of the past
It is important that both parties have done their best to forgive each other for how things went wrong- if you’re not able to do this, then it may be time to consider ending the partnership.
You both want it to work
The relationship isn’t going to fix itself – you need to both want it to work, and be willing to put in the time for it.
Can a broken relationship be restored?
The question is, can a broken relationship be restored? The answer is yes! It might take some work to get things back on track, but there are ways you and your partner can build love again. Here’s how:
– Be honest with one another about the feelings that have led up to this point in time. Be honest with one another about how you would like to see the relationship change.
– Take time apart from your partner, and then come back together for a night of romance.
– Attend couples therapy if needed, talk to a relationship counselor so that both parties are able to heal on their own as well as in tandem.
– Rebuild trust. If your trust to one another has been shattered, it’s going to be difficult to rebuild your relationship. So better, start rebuilding trust. Take time to talk about the issue.
Communicate because when you are able to communicate with one another and understand how the other person feels then there is a better chance of rebuilding that trust together.
– Understand what has led up for this point in time – not just from one perspective but both perspectives.
– Spend quality time together and start making memories again.
– Start small and work your way up, this will help to rebuild that trust.
– Have fun together – it’s going to be difficult at first but eventually, both parties should be able to have fun with one another in a new light.
– Talk about how to make the relationship feel satisfying again like how you want to be treated. Also, take time to listen to how the other person feels and show them that you care about their feelings.
– Be honest with one another and be open about what is troubling each of you at the current moment in time.
– Respect your partner’s boundaries – this will help both parties feel more comfortable being around one another without feeling uncomfortable. Make sure you’re both on the same page when it comes to what is and isn’t acceptable in this partnership.
– Body language can be an important factor in how your partner will perceive what you are saying
– Create a plan on how to better the relationship and monitor progress. This is important because if there’s no clear indication as to what path your relationship is going down, then it may not end up being successful- or at least.
Those are just a few of the many ways that broken relationships can be restored, but there’s no need for worry! There’s always hope if you just try your best to rekindle your damaged relationship. Set aside the pride & start over.
The best way to fix a broken relationship is by making an effort and really investing yourself in the process. Often just talking about how you feel can help things start off on the right foot because this allows for both parties to express their feelings without feeling uncomfortable.
