When a relationship gets difficult, it’s easy to throw in the towel too soon. It’s easy to say things that you later regret. It’s easy to use the anger you’ve carried forward from past relationships against your new partner.
The truth is, if your relationship was worth taking a chance on, it’s worth finding out if there’s still anything left of it to save.
Now, I don’t know your circumstances, and I’m not saying that the relationship you are in is worth saving because I don’t know for sure. It’s possible that you should have removed yourself from the situation a long time ago. Maybe it’s for the best.
But, if the only counsel you have sought out is from your friends and closest connections, then I’m going to ask you to take a moment. Just breathe.
There was a time when this relationship was what you wanted. Do you remember?
The truth is, relationships have their highs and lows. Strong connections are fueled with passion but, often, they are missing a component that is crucial to a lasting connection:
Lives get busy. People are often too invested in themselves and their careers, leaving their partner feeling lonely and underappreciated. The mind starts to work overtime, the inner dialogue asserts itself. Assumptions seem to be clear-cut. Decisions are seriously considered, final decisions are made, and before you know it, it’s over, before you even had a chance to find out whether that initial spark still burns.
Before you make a drastic move that can’t be undone, we encourage you to speak with an expert who will hear you out and help you come to a resolution that is right for you and your relationship. It may not happen overnight, but putting positive energy into healing your heart, mind, and soul first, before considering what happens in your relationship – this is essential.
