Guy Advice On Healing A Relationship


  • pg 1
									If you're struggling to keep your relationship with your wife or girlfriend from falling
apart, you will need guy advice on healing a relationship. You may want to talk to
your buddies, but the truth is they probably don't know any more than you do. Instead
read this article for some good advice on repairing your broken relationship.
  There are two phrases that should be the building blocks to repairing your
relationship: "I'm sorry" and/or "I was wrong". Neither one will mean a thing if they
aren't sincere. The first thing you have to do to heal your relationship is to be a man
and own up to your part in the problems.
  Many men seem to think that apologizing is a sign of weakness. Actually nothing
could be further from the truth. If you think about it, one of the hardest things anyone
will ever do is to admit they were wrong and that they caused someone else pain,
especially someone you love. That is a hard thing to do. So apologizing isn't a sign of
weakness, it's actually a sign of being a man and being strong.
  In some ways it might seem easier to just bury your feelings and not admit that you
were wrong or that you are in pain. While that might be the first thing many men will
do, it's not the easiest in the long run. If you bury those feelings you will never truly
be free of them. They will jump up and haunt you when you least expect it. No matter
how painful it is, you need to face them and get over them once and for all. That's the
only real way you can have peace for the rest of your life.
  So if you want to heal your relationship you need to honestly access your part in the
breakdown of the relationship. Were you inattentive, did you take your wife for
granted, did you stop making her feel special and loved?
  There's a scene in the movie "The Breakup" where Jennifer Aniston and Vince
Vaughn are fighting. She had just put in a long day at work and hosted a dinner party
and wanted his help to clean up. She said to him " I want you to want to do the
dishes" and, of course, his response was "Why would I want to help you do the
dishes"? A valid question. Sort of.
  I doubt that character really thought she wanted him to want to do the dishes. What
she really wanted was for him to understand that she was tired and wanted to relax too.
She wanted him to show his appreciation of all she does by helping her and taking
some of the burden off of her shoulders.
  Are you guilty of pretending to be 'stupid'. Pretending like you don't really know
what your wife wants? Many men fall into that trap, just like in the movie. They know
what their wife is trying to say, they just choose to pretend like they don't because it
seems easier than actually helping. It's selfish. And it will lead to long term problems.
This all goes back to what I was talking about above: making your wife feel
  The good news is that if you've made some mistakes in the past you can change and
become a better man. You can become the kind of man that you can be proud of and
that she can love and respect. Use this guy advice on healing a relationship as a
starting point and you can not only save your relationship but improve it too.
