How to Save a Relationship from Falling Apart
Saving a relationship from falling apart requires a lot of hard work, so be prepared to do that without losing hope. Take it like a challenge and remember choosing to resolve the problem with your partner is the first step. It requires a big heart to admit that the relationship is not heading in the right direction and needs fixing.
Consistently arguing is a sign that your relationship is heading in the wrong direction. You need to avoid arguments in order to stop your relationship from burning down to ashes. Remember there are no winners in these fights, so step up and make a move to end these unwanted arguments.
You just cannot pin the blame on one person and not the other - both people are responsible for the relationship. It is important to keep in mind that one person should not decide for the other. You need to allow your spouse or partner to make his/her own decisions. Couples need to sit down and figure out just where things started to go wrong.
Without trying to control your partner, it is imperative that you take control of the situation, as in a troubled relationship one person needs to step up and try to sort things out.
Put your ego aside and be the better person by apologizing first and walking away from a hostile argument. Walking away with an apology will give you a better perspective of the situation.
If you really want to rescue your relationship, remember that you do not always have to have the final say. It is best that you find neutral ground.
Do not seek help from someone outside the relationship as this often leads ugly confrontations and aggravates the situation. Instead of trying to fix the relationship with his/her partner, the person ends up being more distant. You have to understand that you do not need anyone else to fix things with your partner.
Perhaps trying too hard is the wrong approach sometimes, as it is wise to give each other some space by spending some time away from each other. This often tends to help in mending a shattered relationship, preventing any further arguments, and giving you some alone time to think.
If you feel things are falling apart too quickly for you to mend, then utilizing relationship counselling should be considered.
