Indications That Your Bumpy Relationship Needs Another Chance

7 Indications That Your Bumpy Relationship Needs Another Chance

Navigating a rocky relationship can be tiring, and it may leave you questioning whether it’s worth it. But sometimes, despite the insecurity, distrust, and lack of open communication, there are 7 indications that your bumpy relationship needs another chance, proving that not all struggling partnerships are beyond repair.

But maybe not everything is lost. A rocky relationship is just one that needs work, a lot of work, to become the best it can be. All the other healthy, happy relationships you may know went through rough patches before they got to a better place. Yours doesn’t have to fail, but both you and your partner have to be willing to put in work, time, and patience.

How To Decide Whether or Not To Continue A Romantic Partnership

Think of the following traits as building blocks that you can use to make something better. If you have all ten of these, or even most of them, it would not be smart to end your relationship just yet.

You both talk about your problems, even though you don’t know how to talk to each other well.

You may end up arguing and getting impatient, but you both still try to talk about your worries and points of view. This shows that both of you care enough to try, even though you know you could be communicating better. It means you care about the relationship and want to get to a better place where you can talk calmly and clearly.

Even though things look bad right now, you have a base to build on. All that’s left to do is figure out how to cool down and communicate effectively without violence.

Even though you have problems, you have fun together and have a lot of good, funny, and healthy memories to share.

Even if there are many bad times, it’s hard to let go of something when there are many good ones. Even with all the drama, there might be a chance if you both agree you have great chemistry and a great dynamic.

The key is to find ways to reduce the bad times and increase the good ones. You can do this by sitting down together and figuring out what works and what doesn’t.

Neither of you really wants to end the relationship.

Even if they deny it and act happy, no one really likes a breakup, but sometimes people really want to end things because they’re unhappy. If you want to break up and are ready to go through the grieving process, you’ve already moved on from the relationship.

If neither of you feels this way but want to solve the problem, then you have a starting point. Now, all you have to do is face the problems and find solutions, no matter how small, so you can stay in the relationship and never feel like you have to run away.

You’re in love, and you can’t see yourself with anyone else.

It’s safe to say that a relationship should end if neither person loves the other. There’s nothing left to do, and it’s clear that you want to see other people. But if you love each other so much that you can’t imagine being with anyone else, you owe it to yourself and each other to give it a shot.

It’s not easy to find love. People all over the world are either alone or in relationships just to feel safe. If you have something real, losing it all would be a shame because of problems you could solve together.

You’re both aware of the problems in your relationship, so neither of you is in denial.

Even though it sounds silly, this is a pretty big deal. If one of you or both of you are in denial, you will play down problems, ignore things you need to solve, and maybe even let problems fester and get worse. It will spread to everything you do together like a disease, taking the fun out of sex, hanging out, date nights, and eventually your whole lives.

If you and your partner don’t have this problem and are aware of the problems without sugarcoating them, you have a healthy view of what’s going on and can take steps to fix it that are reasonable.

After a fight, you’ve always said “I’m sorry” and gone the extra mile to make up.

No matter what the situation is, saying “I’m sorry” is hard for everyone. You have to get over your pride, admit your mistakes, and ask for forgiveness from someone else.

The act is risky, but if you and your partner do it and find ways to make things better after an argument (crazy sex, special date, special food or event, doing more of those small things that say more than words, etc.), then you deserve to give your relationship a second chance.

Ultimately, you both want the same things for the future.

If you’ve decided that you want to spend the rest of your lives together and grow old together, then you’re in a serious, long-term relationship. If you and your partner talk about your hopes for the future and agree on most of them, you’re good to go. For example, you might both want to live in a small place with an open floor plan, or you might both want to retire in Europe. You might both want kids, or both not want kids.

No matter what, you shouldn’t throw it all away if you both smile when you talk about the future and have the same or similar goals. Instead, for the sake of your relationship, you should work together to make that vision come true.

People think that rocky relationships are the worst kind, but in reality, they just mean that two people need to find ways to highlight their strengths and make them work well with each other. It’s not impossible, and if you really want your relationship to last, it can lead to a very strong, satisfying one if you do it right.

There is a big difference between a relationship that is unhealthy and one that is rough but just needs a few changes. Take a long, hard look at what’s keeping your relationship going, and use the signs above to decide if your relationship deserves a second chance.
