You are not alone.
It’s hard to believe, but most people have been in a failing relationship at one point or another. And while it is difficult to deal with, there are steps you can take to help cope with your situation and get out of the bad place that you’re in right now.
This article will offer 22 tips on how to deal with a failed relationship.
Accept that the relationship might not work out
It’s possible that the relationship might not work out, and that’s okay. Don’t be afraid to admit this to yourself and the other person involved. If the relationship is causing more pain than happiness, it’s time to let go.
Talk about your feelings
It’s important to talk about your feelings with someone who will listen. Find someone that you trust and talk to them, whether it be a friend, family member, or co-worker. Having someone there to listen can help take an immense weight off your shoulders.
Get rid of the negative thinking that is causing stress in your life
Negative thoughts are both annoying and dangerous because they can cause a lot of stress in your life. If you are constantly worried and stressed out, it will be difficult to cope with a failing relationship. Take some time for yourself and work on getting rid of the negative thoughts that are plaguing your mind.
Don’t bottle your feelings up inside
Bottling your feelings up inside will only make you feel worse in the long run. If you are feeling angry, sad, or frustrated, find a way to express those feelings. Writing in a journal can be a great way to do this, or talking to a friend or therapist.
Don’t take all the blame for the failed relationship
It’s important to remember that it takes two people to make a relationship work. Both parties are responsible for the success or failure of the relationship. Don’t take all the blame on yourself and don’t let the other person do the same.
Let go of the past
The past is in the past and there is no use in dwelling on it. If your relationship failed, it’s because it wasn’t meant to be. Learn from the experience and move on.
Don’t compare your relationship to others
It’s natural to compare your relationship to others, but it’s not healthy. Every relationship is different and has its own set of problems. Don’t compare your relationship to others, just try to improve it for what it is.
Try not to talk bad about the other person in front of friends and family members
This will only make you look like the guilty party and cause problems with other people in your life. If you are feeling upset, be open and honest with your friends and family members, but avoid saying anything bad about the other person.
Don’t play head games with yourself or the other person involved
Head games are a waste of time and only cause more problems for both parties. Avoid engaging in them because they can lead to even more frustration and failed relationships in the future.
Don’t stalk the other person online or in person
It’s important to respect the other person’s privacy and give them some space. Stalking the other person will only make you look desperate and push them further away.
Don’t beg the other person to come back to you
This will only make you look desperate and unattractive. If the other person wants to be with you, they will come back on their own. Don’t beg them to come back because it won’t help the situation in any way.
Avoid making promises that you can’t keep when trying to get the relationship back together again
Be honest with yourself and the other person involved. If you know that you can’t keep a promise, don’t make it. This will only lead to further problems down the road.
Don’t try to change the other person into who you want them to be
This is a recipe for disaster and will only cause more arguments in the future. If you don’t like who the other person is, it’s time to end the relationship.
Don’t try to control everything in the relationship
Relationships are about compromise. both parties need to be willing to compromise in order for the relationship to work. Trying to control everything will only lead to frustration and arguments.
Let the other person have time for themselves
It’s important to give one another some space. If you are feeling smothered, suggest that the other person takes some time for themselves and see if they will do the same for you.
Don’t use guilt trips or play on emotions in order to make the other person feel bad
This is manipulative and only causes more problems in the future. If you are feeling upset, talk to the other person about it, but don’t try to manipulate them into doing what you want.
Don’t keep bringing up past arguments or disagreements
The past is in the past and there is no use in bringing it up again. If there are unresolved issues, try to talk about them and see if you can come to a resolution. But don’t keep bringing up past arguments because it will only lead to more problems.
Don’t give up on the relationship without trying to work things out first
Relationships are hard work and require time and effort from both parties. If you are feeling like giving up, try to talk to the other person about it and see if there is a way to work things out.
Don’t be afraid to communicate with the other person
Communication is key in any relationship. If you are feeling upset, talk to the other person and see if they are willing to listen. If they aren’t, it might be time to end the relationship.
Don’t wait for the other person to do something about their feelings before you start talking
If you are feeling upset, don’t wait until the other person finally says something before sharing your feelings with them. This will only lead to frustration and more communication problems in the future.
Don’t ever let the relationship become physical
Physical violence is never acceptable in any relationship and can lead to further problems down the road. If you are feeling unsafe or uncomfortable, talk to the other person and see if there is a way to resolve the issue.
