Starting a relationship for some Singaporean couples may be a quick and easy process made possible and acceptable by modern times but it can also be a result of long and patient hard work. It’s just ironic that most relationships that end apart may be a quick and instant affair regardless of how they were started. One partner may have seen it coming for a long time but the other may just find himself/herself waking up to the reality of the breakup. Fixing a broken relationship is a long shot for most couples where broken relationships are likened to shattered glasses. But for those who are still hopeful in mending their broken relationships, here are some tips to help you:
Realize the real reasons behind your breakup
The first step to mending broken relationships is to realize and completely understand the reasons why you two broke up. Breakups may be triggered by petty reasons but the real reason behind the breakup is more complicated and serious than meets the eye. You may realize that the root cause lies on a far past that was only taken for granted but it may also be a continuous issue that has built up over time.
Learn to completely forgive your partner
If you’re both willing to start anew in your relationship then you need to also learn how to completely forgive each other for your past mistakes. You’re only taking your relationship nowhere if you insist on holding on to keeping tabs of everything your partner has done wrong. Part of attaining a successful relationship is accepting your partner completely – mistakes and all.
Make renewal of commitments
Once you have both agreed on renewing your relationships, consider this as the perfect opportunity for renewing your commitments with each other. Renewal of commitments after overcoming serious obstacles in the relationships will make couples feel like they have achieved something big as well as grown in their relationship. This signals a renewed hope for a better chapter for you two.
Be willing to change yourself
The best way to correct anything wrong that has happened in the past is for you to be willing to become a better person because of it. Your willingness to work on yourself and avoid on placing the blame on other people or situations show that you have matured as a person. This makes you more appealing to your partner, too.
