It is not every time you have issues in your relationship you should think of quitting. Sometimes, you and your partner just need to work things out, sit down and talk and get back on track all over again. This also happens in marriages.
If you are in that phase, where you know your relationship is failing and you do not know what to do, we are here to help you.
Here are some tips to help you below:
It might sound too simple, but when you really allow yourself to listen—and ask questions about—what your partner says, it not only leads to better conversations but also better communication.
2. Take a few days apart
Missing each other is a great way to reconnect. Try hooking up with some girlfriends for an overnight stay or a weekend getaway every few months and you’d love it.
3. Find a support team
Have a handful of great friends or family members you can call so your significant other doesn’t have to hear every small grievance going on in your life.
4. Do things together
Jot down new and fun things you want to accomplish for a day as a couple and try your best to achieve them. Giving back is a great way to keep perspective of how great your relationship is, and how lucky you both
5. Talk to a relationship counsellor
You both should see an experienced relationship counsellor for advice. Get relationship tips from them and see what you can take away to apply to your relationship.
6. Appreciate your relationship
Stop and appreciate all that your relationship is this very second. Stop living for what it can be. This person is choosing to be in your life every day, not every day in the future.
7. Ask the questions you asked at the beginning
What are you hoping to accomplish in the next year? What are you scared of? These answers change with time, no matter how long you guys have dated, so we need to keep asking these questions.
8. Avoid nagging
Take a step back and figure out the serious things about your partner that truly bother you, and approach them to talk from a place of concern and support instead of picking on them all the time. That’ll definitely get you nowhere.
9. Take care of yourself
No relationship can be successful if you don’t feel good about yourself, both inside and out. So, before you try to fix that relationship, ensure you have yourself fixed first.
