What To Do When One Person Wants To Leave The Relationship
Here are 4 key things to be aware of when you are working at rescuing your relationship.
1. Don’t panic.
The place to start is to keep calm. The more reasonable and patient you are the better chance you have at getting your partner to listen to you.
2. Work at seeing the other person’s point of view.
Remember what will influence your partner the most if they feel accepted and understood. If you try too hard to present your side of the story, they are more likely to feel more distant from you.
3. Don’t always focus on trying to convince the other person to “give you another chance”.
You can best have your partner feel closer to you by how you act rather than
trying to convince them.
4. Give them space to breath.
Too often partners are worried about being left and they push too hard.
For example: calling or texting constantly. Be attentive don’t smother them.
