Millennial Magazine - get-your-ex-back

It’s a familiar story: cuddles, promises, plans, love, arguments, tears, heartbreak! What went wrong? Breaking up with a loved one is a painful process. Most of us will have experienced heartbreak at one time or another. Relationships are hard! Life, with all its pressures, often gets in the way, making what was once a beautiful thing become saturated with bitterness, resentment and confusion. What are some of the most common reasons people break up?

  • Infidelity
  • Lying
  • Lack of communication
  • Money issues
  • Anger and resentment
  • Lack of understanding

This list is not exhaustive, relationships are complex and there are many factors to consider when sharing your life with someone. But how do you know when it is time to walk away or if something is worth fighting for? What if you had a solid foundation but other issues got in the way? What if you let her go, but now you know it was a mistake? What if all you can think about is getting her back… is it too late?

The good news is, it’s never too late to go and get the person you love. If you wake up one morning overwhelmed with the thought that you made the wrong decision, chances are you are right and you should never have walked away. Thankfully, a Get Her Back Guide may help you navigate the tricky waters of reunion. The suggestions found at getherback.com are useful as a first step. Establishing the reasons why you broke up are paramount to trying to fix things.

Here are a few tips if you’re thinking of rekindling a lost love:

Recognize your role in the breakup and address it.

Decide what you will say if challenged. Make reasonable changes so it won’t be a recurring problem in the future.

Give your ex some space.

Often we need some time to evaluate what we want/need in a relationship. Respect her boundaries, whilst letting her know you are there.

Don’t spread rumors or gossip about her.

If you need to talk to someone, choose a trusted friend. It goes without saying that it won’t bode well for you if she finds out everyone knows your personal problems.

Be willing to talk.

Most relationships go wrong when there is a breakdown in communication. Many issues can be tackled when both parties are open, honest and willing to listen.

Don’t be too pushy.

It might be tempting to make intense declarations of love, but you don’t want to overwhelm your ex. So take it slowly.

Try not to be defensive.

Easier said than done, but this will just hinder efforts to reconnect.

It’s good to remember that everyone grows and changes, it’s a natural part of life. Whether we can grow and change together is down to each individual. As the experts say at thelawofattraction.com “If you have grown and improved as a person, you would probably hope that your ex has done the same too. So that you both can grow and improve, you will need to have some time to reflect on your faults, which can really help your relationship if you get back together,” recognizing one’s own faults and issues is a sign of maturity and can lead to a better understanding of ourselves and those around us.

Whilst the prospect of starting anew with the one you love is exciting you may, understandably,  feel a sense of trepidation and anxiety. Relationships break up for a reason and usually the time preceding the breakup is pretty miserable for both parties. Try not to let anxiety take over  “you’re going to have to make sure that you and your significant other are on the same page, and saving a relationship is a two way road, You’re undoubtedly feeling a surge of emotions right now because you’re terrified of things falling apart beyond repair, but don’t let this fear paralyze you and keep you from taking action” if you are both committed to making the relationship work and you have some sort of plan moving forward,  you are giving it the best chance. And never stop talking! It is the lifeblood of all good relationships, romantic or not.

So is all lost when you break up? If you want your ex back for the right reasons, It doesn’t have to be… if you love someone and you regret the split, take a leap of faith, what’s the worst that can happen? If they reject you then you’re no worse off than before. But if they are open to the idea of a reconciliation, you never know, it may be the beginning of a very beautiful love story! Good luck.
