8 Signs It's Okay To Give Your Relationship Another Chance

Relationships are nothing like a simple mathematics algorithm. It's the variable human factor in them that makes them far more complicated and difficult to understand. Sometimes we fall apart and grow distant from someone we really love and wonder if it is worth giving the relationship another shot. Well, truth be told, in Donald Miller’s words, “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” But the problem is that we tend to forget this sometimes and let things go because, for us, our ego becomes bigger than the relationship. However, if, at any point, you realise that your love for him is more important than those little things that annoy you, it's okay to give your relationship a second chance!

1. Everyone around you speaks highly of him

Sometimes, being overwhelmed by emotions of sadness or anger, we end up taking big decisions without properly thinking them through. However, after a break-up, if you see that all your friends and family can’t help but talk positively about your man, then maybe you need to reconsider your decision. While, there is no doubt that you know him best, sometimes our judgments do get clouded by the one bad thing that happened.

2. You can only remember all the ways in which he was almost perfect

Retrospectively, when you realise that you’d be much happier having him in your life than not having him, then you must consider giving your relationship another chance. Distance brings perspective and sometimes, a short break is all that is needed to kick-start a relationship again and forget about the little things that bothered you.
