How can I fix a broken relationship? My heart is broken :(

Dear Helpline,

How can I fix a broken relationship? My heart is broken 🙁
Dear Anonymous,

Mending a broken relationship requires willingness and compromise on both ends. The individuals in the relationship must be willing to hear each other out and discuss the necessary actions they should take, so that their relationship can improve.

This however, requires admittance on the part of whomever’s wrong and an apology as well, in order for the individuals to move forward and attempt to create a better relationship.

Getting a broken relationship back to its normal state can sometimes be a mammoth task. Forgiveness is essential. At times, individuals do not readily forgive. It can be hard for the individual to forgive you or for you to reciprocate the action depending on the nature of the situation.

Talk things out with that person at length if he or she is willing to give you a listening ear, or vice versa. Make a decision as to the next best step— what should you both fix or refrain from doing to make your relationship a better one?

If the individual refuses to hear you out, perhaps he or she will come around. That is not always the case however; you can only hope and try your best to get a positive outcome.

If things don’t work out the way you want it to, though it will sting, eventually, you’ll be able to smile again. I do hope there’s a rainbow on your end.
