10 Steps To Fix A Broken Relationship

How To Fix A Broken Relationship



It was the day I had always dreamed of—I had just gotten engaged to the love of my life.

Of course I called my parents and my siblings to tell them the exciting news.

Next, the person I really wanted to call was my best friend—only, we had recently fallen out. We weren’t really talking anymore. Our relationship was broken.

During the happiest moment of my life, and then during the coming months planning the wedding, I was sad that my best friend wouldn’t be a part of it.

I had always wanted her to be there when I shopped for a dress, to get excited with me about picking out centerpieces, help plan my bridal shower, and just be by my side. But it was not to be.

So I mostly did these things with my mom, my fiancé, and myself. I definitely missed my best friend. Many times I wondered why we had arrived at this point in our friendship.

Unfortunately, sometimes even the best relationships get broken for some reason or another. Spouses, friends, family members, co-workers, and others may at one time be so close, you could never imagine being apart.

But we are all human, and there are many things that can drive a wedge between us.

It could be something like a silly disagreement over something small, or it could be something big that makes you question your trust and therefore, the whole foundation of your relationship. Other times it’s a million little things that eventually cause you both to drift apart.

Thankfully, my friend and I did find each other again a year or two later. The reason we had grown apart no longer was an issue, and we were able to be friends again.

It was such a relief to not feel that emptiness anymore. Life circumstances dictated that we were never to become best friends again, but at least we could talk and laugh again as regular friends.

I was happy to have her in my life again. I look back at old photos of us and have happy memories I will always cherish, and we are able to make new memories now.

Don’t let past hurts keep you from the people you love.

Even if you have had things happen that have broken your relationship, you can turn things around. There is hope.

Here are the steps on how to fix a broken relationship:
