Few things in life can bring as much joy as a warm and loving romantic relationship. However, when things take a turn for the worse, it can be heartbreaking, frustrating and difficult to deal with. Problems are to be expected in any relationship. No one is perfect and life is full of the unexpected. This combination of things makes it essential to take time to keep your relationship healthy and happy. What if your relationship is broken? Will your ex want you back?
Do you go to bed without a word? Are questions answered in mumbles and grunts? Do you two argue all the time, even over little things?
The good news is that a relationship can be mended and you can get your ex back even if they dumped you. It takes patience, dedication and a willingness to work at it. The end results, however, are well worth the effort put forth. So what are the keys to mending a broken relationship?
Here is a look at a couple:
To begin, each relationship is different, but human needs and tendencies remain pretty constant across the board. Two of these needs are respect and love. In general, a woman wants to feel loved, appreciated and noticed by her mate. A man wants to feel that he is respected and not undermined. In order to fill these needs, good communication is imperative. How can you go about implementing these?
|You need to be as mature as you possibly can when trying to repair your relationship.|
To begin, take an honest look at yourself. What do you want and need out of the relationship? What about your partner, do you know what they want and need? If you don’t know, you need to ask. Next, think about how you contribute to the relationship. Are you giving all you can, or do you tend to take more than you give out? A healthy relationship is one where both parties are willing to give.
The most successful relationships are said to be those with two good givers. Selfishness has no place in a lasting happy partnership. If you see a tendency toward selfishness in yourself, work at learning to give more of yourself. Remember that if your loved one is happy, you will be happy too. Personal interest goes a long way in any close relationship. Knowing what your partner feels and needs and responding appropriately, will make you a better partner.
|Communication is essential in any relationship, and the need to communicate well is even more of an issue when we are going through problems in a relationship.|
Besides showing love and respect, communication is a foundation that you cannot be successful without. To mend a broken relationship, you are going to need to take time to talk things out. Be honest, calm and kind. Being open is not always easy, and for some its even harder. Use questions to draw out your loved one. Avoid becoming heated, try to remain calm. If its clear that an argument is going to break out, take a break- go for a walk and cool off. Angry words can’t be retracted, think about what you are saying and remember that you want to mend, not tear down.
|You need to be able to express yourself fully, while taking the feelings and needs of a partner into consideration.|
Every relationship, romantic or otherwise, is going to have ups and downs. When we take into consideration how the other feels and why, and act on that in an appropriate way, we will keep our relationships strong. A broken relationship can be mended, be patient, loving and always respectful. Forgiveness goes a long way too. The icy coolness of a broken partnership can thaw. You can be back, happy and warm in each others arms once again!
