HOW TO REPAIR THAT RELATIONSHIP
1. Be your own strength.
Always remember to detach yourself from the results in life. If you put all your eggs into this person’s basket, his or her rejection will shatter you. Instead, define yourself and how you react, but don’t expect your ideal result.
2. Always know how to apologize.
Saying sorry goes a long way, when someone is angry with you and you say sorry, it helps to let the person know that you don’t feel good about what you did wrong. There are few conflicts in life that can’t be resolved with an apology. At the very least, it’ll give you an opportunity to forgive yourself and move on, even if the other party isn’t interested.
3. Accept your faults.
Always accept responsibility, even if you don’t believe you were at fault. The other person clearly believes you are, and accepting responsibility will help you bridge the gap between your perceptions.
4. Do not make things worse .
Remember that both you and the other party have animosity toward each other or at least used to. You know there are certain triggers that get to that person – be an adult and avoid pushing those buttons, no matter how badly you’re tempted.
5. Be positive minded.
It’s always a good idea to think positive in life. Thinking negatively, thinking about the thousands of ways things can go wrong, think right and positive. Even if things don’t work out, you can think positively about the next experience. Keep looking forward, and you’ll exude confidence, which is attractive to other people. This will draw the other person to wonder why he or she doesn’t have a relationship with you.
6. Be as real as you can be.
Always be the real you, no matter what happens. You’d rather fail your way than succeed as someone else. Don’t bother pretending to be what the other person wants – it’s not a competition, and you’d be surprised at how much honesty will open doors for you in life.
7. State your boundaries.
You have personal boundaries, make sure you make it clear to whoever your partner is, and you’re going out of your way to not overstep other peoples’ boundaries so you deserve respect as well. Be sure to politely and gently remind the other person whenever they’ve overstepped a boundary you established. But be sure it’s one you’ve both acknowledged exists so you’re not falsely accusing anyone of crossing a line he or she didn’t know was there.
8. Keep the conversation going.
No one likes a boring partner or a boring relationship. No matter where the conversation goes, try to keep it moving toward your goals. If the conversation is going well, invite the other party to another conversation or meeting in the future. Otherwise, ask him or her for whatever it was you contacted him or her for in the first place.
9. Be ready to let go if necessary.
Despite your best intentions, there’s a chance the other person simply doesn’t want to reconnect. If he or she doesn’t respond or seem aggressive, forget about it. There are billions of people in the world, and there’s absolutely no reason to waste your time on one who doesn’t like you.
Making a broken relationship work again is difficult – both parties have to face distrust and insecurities that drove you apart in the first place. If you’re looking to rebuild a broken relationship from your past, reconnect with the person through text, email, or online. If he or she responds, there may be interest. If not, you have the closure you need to move on.
