Everyone goes through tough times. Every relation has a rough patch and demands compromise. I’d be lying to you if I said your relationship is a bed of roses. All roses have their thorns and you just need to get through it, together. At times when we have been facing difficulties for a very long time, we start to believe that nothing can make things work. Soon, every small thing starts to bug you and build up that frustration. Before you know, you’ve given up all hope and walked out of the relationship. Here are a few things that have given me immense hope in the times when I and my partner had almost given up. I would recommend that you and your partner do this together. A small exercise that will revive your relationship.
5. COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER ABOUT WHY YOU BOTH ARE DOING THIS
It is important that you and your partner communicate to each other about why you are doing all these things. Sometimes, you already know something but want to hear it from your partner, like listening to your partner say ‘I love you’ is something you can never get used to. So tell your partner that you’re doing this because you want things to work and because you are not ready to let go till you have tried everything to make things work. Also, hear what your partner has to say. This will help you see that your partner is trying equally.
4. GO DOWN MEMORY LANE
Sit and talk about how you and your partner met. Tell them the things that you remember from that day. It’s like drawing a painting with your words. Help them imagine and relive that day. Also, listen closely to what your partner has to say about that day.
