Second Chances: Coming Back into Someone’s Life

Reflect on why you want to get back together

First and foremost, you should be single and not cause anyone pain when thinking about pursuing your ex back. The same thing applies to your ex-partner. If they’re happily in love with someone, then getting into the picture is an absolute NO.

Reflect on why things didn’t work out the first time

Before trying to get back with your ex or “the one that got away”, think deeply about why your relationship didn’t work out in the first place.

Be patient

If you’re 100% sure you have the right reasons to get back with your ex, then you may set on pursuing them. But it’s important you take it slow.

Keep things casual

You wouldn’t want to put a lot of pressure on your ex-partner. It’s tempting to bring them to your favorite spot which holds a lot of your memories together. However, this might only trigger unnecessary emotions which may cause you to do irrational things.

Make things right this time

Not every person deserves a second chance, nor is lucky enough to be granted one. So if your partner agrees to try working on your relationship again, don’t waste it. Prove to them that accepting you back into their life is the right decision.
