Relationships are like roller coasters: sometimes they’re up and sometimes they’re down. If you are in a struggling relationship or if a split has already occurred, it may not be too late to repair the damage. It is sometimes possible to rebuild and get yourselves on a positive path.
When damage has been done to a relationship, it can take time and serious effort from both you and your partner to repair it. It is almost never impossible to rebuild trust, respect, and love. The key is determining if the effort is truly worth it and if your heart is really in it.
Before beginning the repair process, you and your partner may want to give yourselves a little time. Evaluate your situation and look at it with fresh eyes to see where you’ve gone wrong, what you could have done differently, and how you might proceed to create a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling relationship.
You may decide not to proceed, but if you do, here are some tips to getting back on solid footing.
