Love yourself first
The first step involves an honest evaluation of yourself and the relationship, and making an effort to love yourself. It will help you determine what is best for you, regardless of what people expect or think about you. It also requires eliminating negative thoughts while setting healthy boundaries with people.
Your partner and you, have to prove to each other that you have changed your behavior.
If you feel your ex-partner has successfully overcome their hurtful behavior and is willing to be patient with you, while you undergo healing, this may be a good sign. But remember, your priority should be your emotional well-being this time.
You have to practice patience.
Your partner’s acknowledgment of the fact that you were deeply hurt in the relationship and that you require time to heal, is very important. Your partner has to realize that change takes time and patience. And it is essential for both of you to be patient with the healing process, and must not be rushed.
Quit playing mind games.
You both have to give up on the mind games. During heated arguments, involving in verbal battles may seem tempting, but it will only exhaust you in the long run and also ruin your partner's desire to work things out with you. Try to be direct with each other and avoid snide comments or beating around the bush.
Trust each other.
Try something new this time. Start working with your partner hand in hand because without trust, one cannot experience a lasting union of love. If you cannot trust your lover, the relationship is bound to fall apart. Do not allow your untrusting thoughts to consume you. Rebuilding love without regaining trust will only seem like an uphill battle. Ask yourself if you can trust your partner and proceed to mend your relationship if only the answer is: Yes, I can.
Sometimes you might feel like the relationship is not worth fighting for, but rekindling love after experiencing emotional damage might result in the development of a stronger and healthier bond.
