Repairing a Damaged Relationship

in Relationship

Repairing a relationship can be one of the most emotionally, mentally and spiritually challenging time in any person's life. It is a very painstakingly long process that will require an investment of time, effort and emotion. But still, there are people who are always willing to give all these and more for the ones they love.

There are actually many reasons why people find it so hard to forgive and to heal broken relationships. Factors such as pride, lack of time, distance and stubbornness are one of the biggest obstacles that hinder reconciliation. Pride, most especially, can keep even the closest family members and couples apart. A proud person will refuse to accept and own his faults, no matter how big or small.

Time can also play a very important factor in repairing relationships. Although most relationship experts will recommend giving your partner space to heal and ease the pain, delaying the reconnection for long periods of time can make the relationship harder to mend as well. More time apart can create bitterness, which can distance you even further. Thus, the sooner you take steps for reconciliation, the better.

Repairing broken relationships may often call for change for both you and your partner. This may not be welcome change, but this will definitely be a change for the better. Thus, the very first thing that you need to do is to examine what kind of person you were in that relationship. Were you insensitive or ungrateful? Did you prioritize work, things and other people over your relationship? If that's the case, be humble enough to accept your faults and be strong enough to change.

Remember, mending relationships is not an overnight process. Love and trust are never built overnight and so gaining them back will take just as long as well, or even longer. Give yourself and your partner time to recuperate and to heal. In some cases, there are partners that may not be willing to reconcile at that point in time just yet. So be very patient and learn to respect her decision. If she still loves you, then she will let you in when she's ready.

Communication is also one very important factor to healing broken relationships. You both may fight and play the blaming game at first but that is a completely normal part of the healing process. What is important is that you both move on from it and be open to examining your own faults and mistakes instead. This will not be an easy process but this is a very important step to reconciliation.

And last but definitely not the least, is forgiveness. Forgive both the little and big things. You may not be able to forget your partner's mistakes but you have the choice to forgive. Your partner will be met with that same decision as well.
