Relationships can be so complicated. And when relationships are broken, they can be so devastating. The reason is that God made us to be in relationships with each other. And we come to depend on those relationships more than anything else. When a relationship comes to an end it makes us feel incomplete and unattached. Our whole lives seem broken and out of control. It you are interested in saving a broken relationship, then here are a few guidelines to follow.
Never make the other person think that you are ending the relationship. Many people will do this to try to scare the other person into doing what they want them to do. This kind of tactic will only lead to the other person feeling that you will leave them on their own and it makes them feel insecure. Don't do or say anything to make the other person feel that you are about to end the relationship.
Always keep the lines of communication open. This is very important. It just might be the most important thing of all. As long as there is communication between the two of you, there is hope. As long as you are talking to each other you can find a way to heal your relationship. When you continue to communicate you are letting the other person know that you respect them and their feelings and are willing to work things out. By continuing to talk to each other you are showing that you care about each other.
Understand that relationships take work. Great relationships don't just happen. You have to work at it. The people you know who have great relationships are the ones who have really worked at it. There is no such thing as a relationship without problems. All relationships have bumps along the way but the really great ones are the ones where two people have decided that their love for each other is greater than their differences. Saving a broken relationship can take some work but it is absolutely possible to do it.
The other person has a right to feel the way they do. Just because you don't see things the same as the other person doesn't mean that their feelings are not justified. If they feel hurt, there is a reason for that. Maybe the thing that is causing them to feel hurt wouldn't have caused you to be hurt, but that doesn't mean that they should not feel hurt about it. They are not the same as you and that is a good thing. We are all different and we all see things differently.
Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. In other words, don't blow things out of proportion. Don't put too much emphasis on the little things. You will never agree totally on everything. If you are concerned about saving a broken relationship, then focus on the things that really matter, the positive things in your relationship. When you look at all the great things you have together, then the little things lose their importance.
