10 Reasons You Should Give Your Relationship A Second Chance

Relationships these days are hard because people are less likely to commit, even when they do, it usually does not last long. Technology on one side is ruining it for us. We have thousands of people available at our fingertips, how can we settle for one person?

As soon as something goes a little wrong, we are back on looking for our next option. I think it makes it all too easy to give up and decreases the quality of relationships that do form.

People do not know how to talk to each other anymore and everything becomes normal just over texting. True bonds are formed in person, looking into each other’s eyes and sharing quality time together.

What Relations Are Supposed To Be?

If we are going through a rough time in our relationship it is easy to find people who will encourage us to break things off, after all, relationships are supposed to make us happy.

Relationships take time and happy couples do fight. Anyone who says their relationship is easy and perfect and they never fight is a lie. And many times, the same issues you are having in your relationship will come up again in the next one.

Everyone deserves a second chance. But here I am not talking about really bad relationships I am talking about the ones that ended up because of difference in opinion. Those relations where the timing was off.

Reasons You Should Give Your Relationship A Second Chance:

1. Because People Do Change:

We are often told that people will never change. But people do change, they could be really sorry, they could have learned their lesson.

Changing form your mistake is vital, it means you have worked to think, feel and conduct yourself differently. Learning from your mistakes means that you have acknowledged it and are willing to take responsibility for yourself.

2. Because Both Of You Really Want It:

For longevity mutual desire for a relationship is essential. People break up because they do not feel appreciated, valued or they don’t feel acknowledged.

Communication is remedy, make sure both have spent time reflecting and communicating to each other before making any commitment. Sometimes it is really hard to confess the deepest parts of your heart, but giving your relationship a second chance can make it work.

3. Because Your Partner Is Honest:

Honesty is a must, if your partner has this, they are a keeper. Everything else in a relationship is negotiated and will take time and compromise. Honesty can take a lifetime to cultivate so give it respect it deserves and reconsider your love.

4. Because They Cannot Live Without You:

Relationships end because a partner does not feel like they are loved and needed, even when the other person says over and over that it is true.

People express their most heartfelt emotions whenever they feel safe. No matter what circumstances are your partner will love you, will be kind towards you and that’s the ultimate goal.

Loving and treating everyone kindly is a kind of relationship that everyone needs and makes life easy for you.

5. Because It Is More Than Just Love:

It should not be enough to stay with someone just because you love each other.  There has to be more than love. Love is one of the most important factor in any relationship but trust, loyalty, care and respect are the ones that are equally important.

If love is all that is keeping two people together, but one do not have those other aspects it is not worth giving your partner another shot.

If you two have a strong foundation that makes for a happy and healthy relationship then a second chance maybe something one can consider.

6. Because Both Are Committed To Make It Work:

Giving a second chance to your partner means hoping that whatever happened in the first place will not happen again. Both partners have to put some efforts to change whatever happened in the past. Both have to be committed to make things work.

7. Because Actions Speak Louder Than Words:

In order to know whether or not one should get another chance, just notice their actions. Words are nice but honestly sometimes they are meaningless.

If someone is saying they will change but their action is not showing any proof then you should not trust that person. But it is okay to give your partner a second chance if you feel that they will put efforts to gain your love back.

8. Because They Are Genuinely Sorry:

Sorry does not really work here but after having done something wrong, one must recognize what they have done. One must realize the pain they have caused and genuinely be sorry about it.

There is a difference between apologizing and actually feeling sorry. It is real that person definitely deserves a second chance.

9. Because It Is Practical:

It is practical and saves emotional energy. Your previous partner may have done things that caused you to breakup but when you start with someone new you are back to square one.

If one can keep anger or ego issues aside maybe the previous partner can give greater insight and appreciation for that relationship.

10. Because One Wants To Be Treated The Same Way:

Turn the tables and imagine that it is YOU who needs the second chance. Anyone can feel better if an opportunity to try again is given to them.

When one has to fix the relationship that took a turn for the worse due to few mistakes, then it is nice to know that someone is willing to give a second chance just to clear things out.


When a person is hurt, disappointed or betrayed by someone they care, it is hard for them to give a second chance.

We are taught to forgive and to give someone an opportunity to make up for past wrongs, not everyone can do that and make things clear in a second chance. But we should give everyone a second chance at least once.
