Wherever you look, there is tons of advice on how to get out of a relationship which is doomed to fail and how to know that your relationship is damaged beyond repair.
However, nobody says that some relationships can be fixed, besides being broken.
Let’s face it—no partnership is easy, and all couples get into crisis from time to time.
But how will you know whether your relationship has the potential of being saved or not?
Well, if most or all of the signs you’re about to read apply to your relationship, it is definitely worth fighting for.
Your problems can be solved
When you disregard your pride and ego, you see that nothing that has ever happened between you and your significant other was that huge of a deal.
There was no abuse, cheating or betrayal. Even when the two of you argue, you both make sure not to cross a line after which there is no going back.
If this is the case with your relationship, that means all of your problems actually can be solved—both of you just have to make an effort in making things work.
You can’t imagine a future without your partner
One of the most obvious signs that you should fight for your broken relationship is the fact that no matter how hard you try, you can’t imagine your life without your romantic partner.
Yes, there are moments when you think you hate them and feel like you want to get rid of them as soon as possible, but the moment you picture yourself without them, this incredible heartache consumes you entirely.
It’s not that you can’t imagine a future without your partner just because you’ve gotten used to them and just because this relationship has become your comfort zone—you really can’t and don’t want to picture yourself next to anyone else besides them.
You don’t see your time together as wasted
Looking back at all the years you’ve spent in this long term relationship, you don’t have many regrets about deciding to dedicate a huge part of your life to this person.
There have been many ups and downs, but you don’t see this time as wasted, and if you had a chance to do it all over again, you wouldn’t change much.
This means that you don’t regret choosing this person to be your life partner for this long, and it is one of the most surefire signs that your broken relationship has a potential of being fixed.
It means that you still have a strong desire to make things better, even though at times it doesn’t look that way.
You two are still best friends
Real love is much more than lust, and real life partners are much more than lovers.
This is exactly the case with your relationship—no matter what happens, your significant other is still the first person you have the urge to share everything with.
The truth us that despite all of your issues, the two of you are still best friends. And nothing is worth losing your best friend over, is it?
But there exists physical attraction
Nevertheless, even though having a firm, friendly bond with your romantic partner is crucial for a healthy relationship, sadly it’s often not enough to save it.
The problem occurs when physical attraction and sexual desire vanish in a relationship.
However, this is not the case with you and your loved on.
The two of you are still very much turned on by one another, and no matter what happens, your sex life is rarely impacted by the problems you face.
You enjoy being in a relationship
Fear of solitude is and should never be a reason to stay in a dysfunctional relationship.
Nevertheless, it’s not that you are scared of going through life on your own—you just have no desire to be single at all.
You don’t mind making compromises and sharing your life with someone.
On the contrary, you enjoy being a part of this union and a part of a couple.
You and your partner still love each other
Whoever tells you that love is enough to save a relationship, they’re lying because it takes much more for two people to find a common path.
However, all of these other things are in vain if there is no love.
That is why one of the most important signs that you should fight to save your broken relationship is the fact that you and your partner still wholeheartedly and unconditional love each other, despite all the hardships.
This love will be the fuel for all the changes needed in your relationship.
