How to Bring a Relationship Back from the Brink of Breakup

Bringing a strained relationship back from the brink can be one of the most challenging things that you ever do. After all, it’s kind of like trying to force something that at one time felt so natural. However, the moment that you realize the work involved in a relationship is the moment that you can start working toward the process of re-ignition.

Recently on an Exhale TV, Dr. Nicole LaBeach generously shared three tips that can bring couples closer together if they’ve drifted apart. Here’s how to do it.

1. Turn towards each other, not away. 

One of the first things that LaBeach insists for a couple to do is to turn toward one another rather than their friends and family. If there are issues in one’s life, don’t confide in people outside the relationship and expect your partner to still feel close to you. The moment that both partners start doing this together is the moment that they will forge a stronger bond.

2. Don’t forget why you got into the relationship. 

Unfortunately, many couples fall apart because they forgot why they fell in love in the first place, LaBeach observes. Instead of looking at one another and seeing the love of their lives, they take that person’s presence for granted and begin to view them as a piece of furniture that blends into the room. Couples need to spend more quality time together if they’re feeling taken for granted and/or like they’re taking their partner for granted. They need to date and have conversations like they did when the relationship was new or else it’ll never feel that way again. 

3. Make an effort to forgive.

The longer you’re together, the greater the likelihood that you will hurt one another. That hurt won’t often come in massive, grand acts of infidelity. It could simply be a subtle loss of respect over time. But it will happen from time to time, and how you respond to it makes all the difference in the world. The only way to move past it and pull your relationship back from the brink is to make an effort to forgive each other, LaBeach notes.

What are some things that have worked for you in revitalizing your relationship? Is Dr. LaBeach’s advice correct? Sound off in the comments section.
