When you feel that your relationship is not going in the right direction, and it is broken, don’t lose hope. Being hopeful might be the most difficult thing you will do, but never lose hope. It might be difficult to believe this at times, but there are a few ways with the help of which, you can fix your broken relationship.
What is a broken relationship?
Well, we all have seen our relationships reach a point which we declare as the dead end. We think that there is no way you can go back to where you started from.
The relationship reaches a place where the ‘magic’ that brought you and your partner together converts into stress and everyday fights.
That’s a tough time for everyone because all of us want our relationships to work out and when you see it falling into pieces in front of you, all you can sometimes do is stand and stare.
But, we don’t want you to give up on a relationship by assuming that it is not going anywhere. We want you to fix your broken relationship. You know why we want this?
Because if that relationship was able to give you happiness at some point in time, it can be repaired.
You can go back to that happy place of comfort, familiarity, and support for each other. That phase has not gone anywhere.
Here Are 4 Ways You Can Fix A Broken Relationship
1) Remember that you fell in love with a different person.
You know what fights and problems do?
They make you feel that your partner is a bad person. This happens because in your mind you keep making stories about your partner and you begin to build a negative image of your partner.
Well, that’s not fair. Because in this process, you forget the person you fell in love with. You forget that when you fell for them, all you could see was their qualities and it was their qualities that were forcing you to be with them.
But after all the problems and fights, all that you see is their bad habits and how wrong/ bad they are! Totally not fair.
All that you have to do is remind yourself why you fell in love with your partner. Constantly remind yourself of their good qualities and even appreciate them. It is very easy and it will surely fix your relationship.
2) Learn to let go.
Well, you know, sometimes, just forgive and then forget. Problems and fights become so huge because we don’t forgive or we only forgive partially.
The thing is that if you have to finish a fight and fix the relationship, you have to forgive wholeheartedly. Become the bigger person in the relationship and forgive your partner, not only through your words but also through your actions.
Once you forgive them, let go. Forget about what they did because if you keep rewinding it in your mind in an endless loop, it is only going to make you feel bad and the problem is going to look much bigger than what it is.
So, forgive and forget. If you keep up this attitude, your partner might begin to forgive you as well. Forgiveness is surely contagious and once you begin to forgive each other, nothing can ever break the relationship.
Have this attitude for both small and big problems and you will see a change happening in your relationship.
3) Talk more.
Oh! Let us just all agree that relationships reach a point of no return when you aren’t communicating enough with your partner.
Yes. All you have to do is talk more. Communicate your needs and your feelings and you will realize that your partner will try to fulfill them.
The thing is that sometimes our partners know what we want but sometimes they just don’t know what we need. And how will they know what you need?
Simple, just go and tell them.
Communication will help establish trust in your relationship. You will more comfortable when you will talk about everything that you should talk about. The bond that will form because of proper communication will really be a good foundation for the relationship.
So, just talk more.
4) Establish a new bond.
Develop a bond of friendship in your relationship.
Seriously, try it. Be better friends to each other. Because sometimes, when we are in relationships, we begin to judge every action of our partner from the lens of the relationship. When you judge your partner, it is surely bad for the relationship. But, if you try to establish yourself as friends first, the problem will be solved.
This is because friends talk problems out and they don’t judge each other’s actions. They are just there for each other in an unsaid way. Friendship is beautiful and it should surely be incorporated in the relationship because it will make the relationship beautiful as well.
Also, if you feel that your relationship is broken, don’t lose hope. Don’t be all depressed and sad. Try and actively try to sort the problems out.
The onus is on you to sort out the problems. Take the necessary steps, support your partner and you will see your relationship becoming the happy bond that it once used to be.
