MAKE IT WORK

Woman (UK) - - Talking About -

Wo­man’s agony aunt, Suzie Hay­man, says…

It’s oh-so tempt­ing to go back to your ex be­cause he’s the devil you know. and when re­la­tion­ships go wrong, there’s al­ways the nag­ging feel­ing that we did some­thing to spoil it, and this time we’ll get it right.

If you’re go­ing to give your re­la­tion­ship an­other go, both of you need to have taken on board what went wrong be­fore. with­out recog­ni­tion and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the prob­lems, a sec­ond (third, fourth or 27th) re­la­tion­ship may be doomed to go along the same lines. Sim­ply say­ing, ‘Sorry – let’s try again’ isn’t good enough. In­stead, ask, ‘what went wrong and how can we make sure it doesn’t hap­pen again?’ to give you a fight­ing chance.
