Here are 3 tips to heal the emotional damage and rebuild the relationship:

1. Accept yourself and work on it

Sometimes we overlook and disrespect our needs, body, and feelings in every relationship. It happens because we begin to perceive ourselves through the eyes of our partners that create circumstances where we don’t love ourselves anymore. We shall be able to express ourselves in the relationship more effectively the more time we invest in learning about and understanding ourselves.

This can help us respect our own decisions just as much as we respect those of our partners, which will increase our sense of involvement and aliveness in the relationship. Remember the key to success in personal and professional relationships is self awareness.

2. Find your passion and live it

You can define passion anyway you like; it could be your absorption in your interests, career, or romantic life. You’ll feel more energized as a person and appreciate life more than ever once you discover and understand your passion and let it flow from your inner self.

It can also help you discover how to better love both yourself and your mate and rekindle the romance in your relationship. Gradually, you’ll also learn to let go of the pain and relinquish the things that actually make us happy. So, find your passion.

3. Avoid holding grudges

Holding grudges against your partner, your past, your errors, and your shortcomings can hinder your life. Instead of doing that, cherish the times that can make you happy and focus on good memories, and the moments that make you joyful. It can help you realise that your partner loves you and that you too love him.

Let go of all the past errors and depressing and tragic situations from your relationship and express gratitude for each fresh day you get to spend with your partner. This will give you a new reason every day to live your life happily with your partner. The world will become brighter and more captivating for your divine self to flourish once you begin appreciating what you have and letting go of what you don’t.
