Dealing with a difficult relationship sometimes reaches the point of wanting to end everything. But if you really think it’s worth fighting for the relationship, then you must change the dynamic and find a way to enjoy it again. I give you some tips that can help you in this stage:

Mark limits

We all have difficult times in a relationship, but a big tip to deal with them is to set limits. If you need time to be alone, talk to your partner about having a time in the day to be with yourself. If instead your partner complains that they do not spend too much time together, set up one day a week for an appointment.

Although the difficult moments of the relationship can be complicated to manage, the important thing is to define what both of them feel and to establish limits to improve it.

Leaving frustration behind

Resentment and frustration are great enemies of the relationship. They are the ones that cause misunderstandings and arguments that wear down the relationship . If you are always frustrated by something your partner does, take a step back, breathe deeply and analyze the situation. You will see that it is not necessary to get frustrated about something so small and you can let it go.

Communicate better

The communication is the key to any successful relationship. If you are in a difficult relationship and you want to solve it, you will have to work as a team with your partner. Talking with the other, understanding it and letting him know what you feel is the best way to avoid misunderstandings. Otherwise, we tend to anticipate, to get angry because the other did not act as we wanted, and it is something he cannot guess. not everyone will like you, and that’s okay.

Do not close

When we are going through a bad time, it seems easier to close and eliminate all that do us wrong. However, it is not something that happens easily. Also, if you close yourself alone, that will generate more problems in the relationship and he will feel hurt. Be honest and talk to him about what you feel. Let your opinion about it and seek an agreement between the two.

Think about the good

When things go wrong, we forget the great moments, the love and the feelings. Therefore, it is essential to think about all the good things that the relationship has the reasons that unite them, the things they have done for the other and how much they love each other. This will help them to feel encouraged and willing to rebuild the relationship and enjoy being together again, these self-help books may add insight.

It is never easy to deal with what makes us wrong. But first you have to recognize it, be willing to make the effort (the two) and follow these tips to rebuild the relationship
