Have you ever asked anyone to help you save your relationship? Many a broken-hearted soul has asked this question of their friends and family.  There are times in life when you let go of the thread that binds you and your partner. And there are also times when you want to bridge that gap and restore those binding forces once more. Situations like this are tough, emotionally and even physically and require a lot of mature thinking.

The truth is that the best cure for heartache is to find and fix the root cause of the problem that caused it, learn from it, and move forward.  We must learn from past mistakes and take precautions to make sure we don’t fall into the same destructive patterns and behavior again. Here are some tips on how to move forward towards a possible reconciliation.

Assess yourself and the relationship.  Are you capable of putting yourself back into the relationship and be a positive force? Can you identify what went wrong before?  Did you have any destructive or negative tendencies that hampered the relationship?  Were there things you could have done differently?  Better? You also need to evaluate if your partner is also ready and willing to exert some effort to save your relationship.  If the feeling is mutual, you have a good chance of salvaging your relationship.

After identifying the problems that strained your relationship and having done your best to learn and accept your part in that, you can try to talk to your partner about them.  Talk calmly, openly and honestly. Express your feelings and concerns but listen closely to what your partner has to say. Having good listening skills is critical to the success of any reconciliation. You must be willing to listen openly and refrain from making any emotional outbursts. If your partner tells you something you don’t want to hear, do  your best to remain calm and collected.  It might be difficult to listen to and accept your partners views on what has happened, but if you truly desire to restore your relationship, the air must be cleared.  Saving a relationship won’t happen overnight. Give it time.

Love certainly works in mysterious ways and problems are normal in the course of a relationship.  We must always be strong enough to endure the challenges together if you want the relationship to work.  Laughter and tears often form the strongest bonds in any relationship so have fun and be there for each other. You can never predict the future and only time will tell if the two of you are destined to walk down the aisle together.
