It is possible to mend the broken pieces of a relationship and restore it to being even stronger than before. Of course, this requires that the two hearts involved are willing to do their part.


Confront the reality of the break-up

To heal from anything, you have to first know what caused the situation in the first place. You have to go back to the problem to find the solution, which means talking about what happened and what brought the relationship to the point where it was not worth fighting for anymore.

Decide to let things go

Forgiveness is difficult, but you need to be at the place where you are willing to let it go and let it stay gone. This means avoiding rehashing the past, and judging the person on what happened


Once you have decided to let the past go, then it is time to renew the commitment. Once you share with your partner that you'll avoid making the same mistakes, and offer your loyalty, love and support, you are on your way to re-establishing a solid love life.

Change the formula

If you want a different result, you have to first change the formula you are using. You have to change what was, and create a new normal to have a solid relationship. Always keep in mind that change begins with you.

Reassure consistently

One of the fundamentals in intimate relationships is communication. You have to consistently talk with and to your partner to ensure the relationship stays afloat. You have to check their feelings on a regular basis to ensure the love story for both parties is on the same page.
