Saving a failing relationship may seem impossible. A failing relationship will likely have many problems that seem impossible to fix. From issues of insecurity to problems with infidelity, failing relationships often seem beyond repair. However, if there are still feelings and bonding between two people, relationships can be saved.
It is far easier to walk away from a relationship than to meet the problems head on. Saving a failing relationship will take effort. A relationship takes two and both will have to work at saving it. The following are tips on how you can help save your failing relationship.
- Recognize that there is a problem. Both people in the relationship need to recognize that there is, indeed, a problem. Pretending that everything is okay when it isn’t will only make things work. Bring the problem to light. What is happening between the two of you? Why is it happening?
- Quit playing the blame game. If a successful relationship takes two, a failing relationship will also take two. Many times, if there is a problem in a relationship, the blame can be two fold. No one person can take more blame. Realize that you may very well be part of the problem. Sit down with your spouse and discuss what the problems are. Discuss what you may be doing to contribute to the failing relationship as well as what he may be doing. Decide on areas where you both need to make a change and be determined to work on it.
- Seek guidance and advice. People often realize that the relationship is failing far too late. Seek guidance as soon as you notice that there is a problem. Consider talking with a pastor or marriage counselor. There is not likely to be a quick fix for your relationship problem but if the two of you are working toward the common goal of saving the relationship, this will certainly be helpful
- Compromise! To save a failing relationship, you must compromise. Realize that you may have to give in a little to make the relationship work. After all, the relationship is not centered on you. It is center around you andanother person. Be willing to compromise when you need to. Unwillingness to compromise shows self-centeredness. This could very well be the reason the relationship is failing.
If you care for someone, a failing relationship is worth saving. Do not give up. By following the advice above, your relationship can succeed. Do not underestimate hard work and dedication, especially when it comes to saving a relationship.
