3 Ways To Fix A Broken Relationship

Updated on September 24, 2011

I never really considered myself to be a big-time handy man. However if something needs to be fixed around the house, I find a way to get it done. So my advice to you is that if your relationship is in need of repair, you should have the handy-man’s mentality to fix your love life.

Here’s what you could do:

1. Give it some thought. Sit down and think about what area in your relationship needs to be worked on. Try to come up with a mental blueprint, and figure out ways to make your relationship better.

2. Take inspired action. Put your plans into motion and take inspired action. If you sit around and do nothing…then nothing will be done. Remember, you have the power to make your relationship great.

3. Give it some time. The Eiffel Tower was not built in one day. For it to be in its strongest, most stable form- a lot of time, effort, and patience had to be put into it. So why should your relationship be any different? Learn (or allow your partner the time) to love, trust, and communicate again. If you have to start slowly, then so be it. As long as there's some form of progress, then your relationship will be headed in the right direction.

Remember why and how you both fell in love. And understand that every relationship goes through tough, trying times. But if you work on making your relationship better, then a lot of positive things will happen in it. So do the right thing- and take the necessary steps to make your relationship great.

      Hi Carolyn. I agree that it may be safer to say "could" rather than "will" when you referenced my tip above. But it's also important to note that when there are problems going on in a relationship, someone has to take some initiative, communicate, and try to work on the issues. This is in fact a positive thing that will benefit the relationship.

      Now I know that there are some variables you have to consider (i.e.; mistrust, hurt, too painful, etc), and not every relationship is the same- nor would every person react the same way in the midst of an argument (both during and post)- or even if the two individuals take a break. But if it's worth making an effort to try to fix, then why not at least try? And if the other person does not want to continue the relationship, then that's fine. You can at least rest your head knowing that you made an attempt to try to resolve things.

      Thanks again for your comment!

      I do believe on both partners putting in time and effort in making a relationship work however, I do not agree with "if you work on making your relationship better then a lot of positive things "will" happen in it" I think is safer to say "a lot of positive things "could" happen", because you really don't know how the other partner is really going to could be that no matter how much effort one partner puts in "fixing" a relationship the other partner still wants to move on, or if in fact it's just to much mistrust, painful etc to fix anyway.
