The first thing to do before trying to fix your relationship is to be very convinced that you still want to be in it. This will help you to put in your very best. Ask yourself this simple question and answer it sincerely; do I really want to fix things with this person? If your genuine answer is yes, then proceed to the next one.




  • Talk About it with All Sincerity

Communication is a vital tool in resolving matters and this one is not exceptional. Sit down and have a good talk with your partner, mention that threat you are facing in your relationship. Call it by its name, it has a name; identify this problem by its name. There is a saying; that knowing your problem is a halfway to solving it.




  • Remember What You Loved about Each Other

This is someone you were ready to die for, #smile. Think of those things you loved about your partner. What were the things you saw in him/her? Why did you start the relationship in the first place? Those special qualities that always drive you crazy in a positive way.




  • Think about All the Good Parts

Remember all the good times you shared together. All the happy moments, all the laughter. Is this problem worth throwing all of them away? Think about it.




  • To Fix Your Relationship -Apologize Where You’re Wrong

Say sorry when you’re wrong


There are no needs for dragging issues. If you’re the one who messed up, it’s time you fessed up. kindly apologize for all your wrongs. Accepting you are wrong is a headway to fixing your broken relationship. Avoid being defensive.




  • Accept the Responsibilities and Consequences for Your Actions

Remember there is a consequence for every one of our actions. Don’t feel bad if you are to be punished for yours. Accepting the responsibility and being ready to face the consequences will help in fixing your failing relationship.




  • Learn from the Experience

Learn from your bad experience and grow


It is said that bad times brings experience, it is true. The good thing about the bad times are the things we learn from there because now, you know better.

The mistakes you made before can’t be repeated if you are more careful this time, and that is a good thing if you ask me. You are more experienced, wiser and smarter.




  • Sincerely Forgive Your Partner

This is exactly what you should do when your partner realizes his/her mistakes and apologizes. Forgiveness is not for the weak but for the brave and strong. It takes a lot of energy to forgive. Do this for yourself and your relationship.




  • Don’t Allow a Third Party to Take Decisions for You

It is better for you to take your own decisions especially in a delicate matter like this one, to avoid regrets and blames in the future. Just as I said in the first tip; you have to be sure that this is what you want to do.

Go ahead and fix your relationship if you want to, don’t let anyone push you to or against it. It’s still up to you if you don’t want to.




  • Control Your Anger when Trying to Fix Your Relationship

Do not let your anger take the better part of you. It will destroy the little piece left of it. Learn how to control it especially at this point that your relationship is very vulnerable.

Don’t hurt each other with your words or actions anymore, I know you are a very upset with the whole situation right now and you have every right to be.




  • Spend Some Time Together

Try reviving what you had before, by spending time together. Do some fun things together, things like going for dinner, outing, the things you used to do when you first started dating. Can you imagine the magic the closeness will do for you?




  • Go on Vacation Together

Spending time together outside your home won’t be a bad idea at all. The uniqueness and freshness of a new location, all alone by yourselves will do a great job in fixing your broken relationship.




  • Try to Reach a Compromise

Since you have decided to save your failing relationship, you must get ready to reach a compromise. You just have to take some shit and let go of some negative vibes. You both might be right in your own way but try to compromise a little.




  • Take Some Time Apart for a While

This option is highly recommended if the heat between you two is too much to handle. Take some time apart if you are feeling very overwhelmed and exhausted as a result of too much drama going on and you can’t take it anymore.

Sometimes, it could be very crazy going through a failing relationship, it could drive you nut. The best thing is to stay apart for a while. This period will give you time to think things through. You might end up running back into each other’s arms.




  • Seek Advice from Professionals.

The last but not the least, I chose this one as the last tip because there are some issues you can take care of on your own without involving any professional.

But if you apply all that I mentioned above and your relationship is still not fixed, then, you really need to see a professional for help. It is most preferably going together with your partner.



  • Fixing a Relationship Quotes

Don’t be in a rush to call it a quit, always think it through

Remember when you wanted what you currently have

There is nothing as sweet as to love and be loved

True love is persistence

There is no partnership if there is no connection

True love stories never end

Find happiness from within not from your partner

Every relationship Comes with its challenges, how you handle it is what matters.
