I'll have to start this off with an apology. I'm sorry. The fact that you are reading this must mean that you are having difficult times in your relationship. I know that can be very difficult. If you want to know how to save your relationship, I have some tried and tested advice that may make a big difference to you and your partner.

But first there is a question that you have to ask yourself, and you need to give yourself an honest answer. This question is, "Why do you want to save your relationship?" The question isn't as dumb or obvious as it may first appear. People frequently cling to people that they would be better off without. There could be several reasons for this. It could simply be as simple as they fear being alone. But before you invest too much time and emotion trying to figure out how to save your relationship, you need to figure out if it should be saved in the first place.

So if after your honest soul searching you decided that you would still like to continue saving your relationship, these are some tips that have worked for many troubled couples in the past:

Your partner has to have an equal part in helping fix the troubled relationship. A lot of times in relationships, one of the people carries more burden than the other. They are like the "fixer" of the couple. They tend to carry most of the baggage emotionally. If this sounds like you, you have to realize that you can't fix everything by yourself. If your relationship is to have a chance of being fixed at all, your partner needs to meet you half way.

Practice open communication without criticizing or condemning. When relationships start going bad there can be a lot of hurt feelings and frustrations on both sides. This can lead to one person resenting the other. This may be tough to overcome. Usually it will come down to a lot of open communication, time, and patience.

If the two of you have never had great communication, you may need to find some resources to help you with this such as physical books, ebooks or counseling. Find top rated sources to help you two work on your communication skills.

You made your bed, so lay in it. If you know that you messed up, this is where you need to be a mature adult and say sorry for your wrong doings. This is very important. This can help to ease those previously mentioned resentments. By offering a sincere apology and owning up to your mistakes you can make a huge difference. It can be music to the ears of someone who loves you and really wants to make things work.

So if you want to know how to save your relationship, strating with these simple tips can make a big difference. Just bear in mind that these problems did not just appear overnight, so they won't be going away overnight either. But as long as both of you are willing to both work at it, you can regain the fulfilling and loving relationship that you once had.
