If you have evaluated your relationship and decided it’s worth salvaging, it may be possible to rebuild. Even if your partner isn’t 100 percent willing to put in the work at the moment, you can start the process on your own.
To begin repairing damage and build yourself up in the process, try these approaches:
- State your intentions: Even if you have split up and are living apart, let your partner know you’d like to work on your relationship and rebuild it using the seven secrets. Admit your own mistakes, identify what you’d like to do to remedy them, and explain why you believe your relationship is worth salvaging.
- Be patient: When relationships have not been built on a solid foundation, it can take some time to get a partner to buy into the notion of rebuilding. Refrain from pestering, badgering, or stalking. Allow your partner to soak in what you have said, what you would like to do, and why.
- Work on yourself: Even if your partner isn’t ready to work on rebuilding, you can start the process through self-improvements. Make the changes in yourself you’ve deemed necessary, develop a positive attitude, communicate with your partner in a manner that follows the seven secrets, and learn to appreciate who you are and what you have to contribute to a loving, caring relationship.
Rebuilding a damaged relationship is never out of the question, although it takes time, effort, and commitment from both you and your partner.
Even if the process begins as a one-way effort, it can result in the desired outcome. If it does not, however, you can still make yourself a happier, healthier, and more fulfilled individual to increase the chances of a happier relationship down the road.
