Many of us find ourselves in situations where we question whether or not the idea of taking back our ex partner is a rational decision. There are many essential factors to consider when deciding whether or not a relationship is repairable. If both you and your ex have acknowledged and accepted responsibility for your part in the relationship’s downfall, then this is a good sign that it can be mended. On the other hand, if there are still untreated addictions and mental health issues, it may be best to stay apart.
- If there is an active addiction present in one of you, it is imperative to wait until they are sober with a good support system.
- If they have a mental illness that they still won’t agree to treat, it is best to put reconciliation to the side.
- Ask yourself if this person still inspires you in the ways that have the ability to make you thrive.
“If you and your ex are considering reconciliation, take the time to personally reflect on the following six questions. Then discuss them together. Doing so may save you lots of pain, and give you both a much better shot at future happiness together.”
