How To Mend Broken Relationships And Build Anew

How To Mend Broken Relationships And Build Anew

Sometimes our relationships take a turn for the worse. We say things we shouldn’t say, or carry out actions that hurt the other person. In doing so, we may risk losing vital relationships; but there are ways to repair these relationships and make them stronger than before.

    1. Forget the Past

    In forgetting the past, all of the negative emotions are washed away. Any toxic feelings, moments, and memories are burned away, leaving one refreshed. It is hard, but it can help you feel better about the situation. When we forgive, and forget the past, we start with a clean slate. Who doesn’t want to start life with a fresh, clean, and new slate?

    2. Apologize

    If there was a fight or complication, regardless of the perpetrator, apologize. Apologies are always accepted regardless of how big the situation.

    Yes, it takes time but it is completely worth every bit of waiting. There is no shame in apologizing; the apologizer and the forgiver both come to a consensus of beginning anew once more. That is the primary thought that counts and is helpful in any given situation, and begins the healing process.

    3. Make Sure There Is Trust

    All relationships require trust. If there isn’t trust, the foundation may not last. Trust is the starting point of every relationship. It can create or destroy them.

    When you trust someone, you put your faith in them no matter what may happen, and you choose to stay by their side. In mending relationships, this is important. You should demonstrate that you trust the other person completely before the new start of your relationship with them.

    It is beautiful to see faith in any relationship because it is essential in both maintaining and mending relationships.

    4. Be Focused

    There is nothing greater than focus. Try and focus on what needs to be fixed before delving too far in the situation.

    Try to see where the differences lie. This will allow you to tread carefully and cautiously without hurting the other person. Trying to keep everyone’s feelings in place allows for ease in relationships and makes everyone feel wanted. Make sure you know what you want in the relationship.

    Knowing what you want in the distant future makes things a lot easier in the near future. Just make sure to have faith in yourself. Know who you are and who the other person is, and together you can figure out how to re-start.

    5. Build Anew

    Let bygones be bygones.

    Don’t stay where you were yesterday in the argument. Try to move on, and if you try, you eventually will be able to move on. If you live the same life for 75 years, that is not a life.

    People change, and so do times and circumstances. People are a result of these changes.

    Don’t let little things get to you, and just move on. It will make you feel better in the long run. That is a guarantee. Who doesn’t like change? Now that we have a clean slate, we can write whatever we want to on it. It doesn’t matter. It is new.

    6. Start With Love

    There is nothing greater than love. Go with a clean heart and tell the other person what you truly feel.

    Love is essential in healing. Love can prevent further damage.

    Love mends everything. It is something that we all crave more than anything in this world. It beats money, honor, or gratitude.

    Love is something that when given can only increase. It is unconditional and something so majestic and pure that it cannot be described fully in words.

    We build trust, faith, and confidence with love.

    Love has such strength; far greater than the greatest wonders of the world.

    Make sure your new relationship has love because it is truly unbeatable. It can outwit, outlast, anything in this world!

      10 Things To Remember When Everything Goes Wrong

      10 Things To Remember When Everything Goes Wrong

      Problems and heartaches in life are inevitable. However, there are some things to remember when you’re right in the thick of it that can help you get through it. When everything seems to be going wrong, practice telling yourself these things.

      1. This Too Shall Pass

      Sometimes life’s rough patches feel like they’re going to last forever. Whether you’re dealing with work-related issues, family problems, or stressful situations, very few problems last for a lifetime. So remind yourself, that things won’t be this bad forever.

      2. Some Things are Going Right

      When things are going wrong, it’s hard to recognize what is going right. It’s easy to screen out the good things and only focus on the bad things. Remind yourself that some things are going right. Purposely look for the positive, even if it is something very small.

      3. I Have Some Control

      One of the most most important things to remember is that you have some control of the situation. Even if you aren’t in complete control of the situation, one thing you can always control is your attitude and reaction. Focus on managing what is within your control.

      4. I Can Ask for Help

      Asking for help can be hard sometimes. However, it’s one of the best ways to deal with tough situations. Tell people what you need specifically if they offer to help. Don’t be afraid to call on friends and family and ask them for help, whether you need financial assistance, emotional support, or practical help.

      5. Much of This Won’t Matter in a Few Years

      Most of the problems we worry about today won’t actually matter five years from now. Remind yourself that whatever is going wrong now is only a small percentage of your actual life. Even if you’re dealing with a major problem, like a loved one’s illness, remember that a lot of good things are likely to happen in the course of a year or two as well.

      6. I Can Handle This

      A lack of confidence in handling tough times can add to stress. One of the best things to remember is that you can handle tough situations. Even though you might feel angry, hurt, disappointed, or sad, it won’t kill you. You can get through it.

      7. Something Good Will Come Out of This

      No matter how bad a situation is, it’s almost certain that something good will come out of it. At the very least, it’s likely that you will learn a life lesson. Perhaps you learn not to repeat the same mistake in the future or maybe you move on from a bad situation and find something better. Look for the one good thing that can result when bad things happen.

      8. I Can Accept What’s Out of my Control

      There are many things that aren’t within your control. You can’t change the past, another person’s behavior, or a loved one’s health issues. Don’t waste time trying to force others to change or trying to make things be different if it isn’t within your control. Investing time and energy into trying to things you can’t will cause you to feel helpless and exhausted. Acceptance is one of the best way to establish resilience.

      9. I Have Overcome Past Difficulties

      One of the things to remember when you’re facing difficulties, is that you’ve handled problems in the past. Don’t overlook past difficulties that you’ve dealt with successfully. Remind yourself of all the past problems you’ve overcome and you’ll gain confidence in dealing with the current issues.

      10. I Need to Take Care of Myself

      When everything seems to be going wrong, take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest, get some exercise, eat healthy, and spend some time doing leisure activities. When you’re taking better care of yourself you’ll be better equipped to deal with your problems.
