Ways of reconciling broken relationships


The world is full of relationships that are broken, and sometimes it can be hard to know how to deal with them. If you’re in a relationship that has become toxic for one reason or another, here are some tips on how to heal your broken relationship:

It takes two.

Reconciling with your ex is a two-way street. You can’t force someone to reconcile, and if you’re not willing to let go of the past, there’s no hope for reconciliation.

It takes both parties—the reconciler and the one who wants out—to make this happen. If only one person is interested in reconciling, it won’t work out because they won’t be able to put their pride aside long enough for things get back on track.

However, if both parties are willing to work through their issues together rather than fighting over them endlessly until they just give up altogether (and maybe even fall out of love entirely), then there may still be hope left after all!

Take responsibility.

If you’re trying to reconcile a broken relationship, the first thing you need to do is take responsibility for your actions. Don’t blame others or make excuses for why things went wrong. Take ownership of what happened and move on from there.

If someone has hurt you in a way that makes them seem like an unrepentant jerk, this can be difficult because they may have made some poor decisions on their own behalf. However, if they’re still behaving badly now that they’ve been told how much pain their behavior caused then there’s no reason why anyone should stay together with someone who refuses to change their behavior!

It’s also important not only when dealing with divorce proceedings but also any other issues concerning relationships over time; such as cheating partners or ex-boyfriends/girlfriends who keep texting each other even though they know better (or at least think they do).

Admit to having a problem.

This is a simple step, but it’s important. You need to be honest with yourself and your partner about what’s going on in your relationship. If you can’t admit that you have problems, how can they possibly fix them?

You may find that admitting to having a problem is hard at first, but once you’ve done it, then things will start getting better. You’ll feel more secure in your relationship and less stressed out by it all!






Forgiveness is about letting go of the past, not forgetting it. It’s not about condoning what happened or trusting that the other person will change for good. It’s also not about trusting them again. Forgiveness is an act of pardon: it lets you take your anger and resentment off your mind by forgiving them and healing yourself as a result.

Forgiveness allows you to love yourself again because it allows you to forgive yourself for being hurt in the first place (you were just doing what felt right at the time). This doesn’t mean ignoring what happened; rather, forgiveness means accepting responsibility for your part in breaking up with someone—whether it was because they didn’t meet some arbitrary standard set by society or because they made mistakes—and moving forward from there instead of holding onto bitterness forevermore.

Don’t make the same mistake twice.

  • Don’t repeat the same mistake.
  • Don’t let the same mistakes happen again.
  • Don’t be afraid to talk about your mistakes, ask for help or forgiveness and move on from there.

What makes you happy?

  • What makes you happy?
  • What are your goals?
  • What are your dreams?
  • What are your values and principles, the things that matter most to you in life. Write down everything that comes to mind for each value or principle. If there’s something else that could be added to this list, add it! The point here is not only to make sure we have some kind of structure but also because this exercise will help us identify which parts of our lives need attention later on (and if we don’t see them yet).

Remember, no matter what happens, you have to be strong for yourself. A relationship only restores if both parties are willing to try again.

Remember, no matter what happens, you have to be strong for yourself. A relationship only restores if both parties are willing to try again. You will make mistakes and hurt each other if you try too hard to make it work – but that’s OK! In life we all experience loss and heartache; it’s how we handle these experiences that matters most in determining how much happiness we can achieve.

If you want something bad enough, there are no obstacles you can’t overcome!

You know the best thing to do if you’re in this situation? Try to make the relationship work. The worst thing you can do is give up hope or give into bitterness. You may not see things going well right away, but if you stick with it and don’t give up on yourself, then we can all be happy together again!
