STEP 5: Once you’ve sorted out your differences, laid down your thoughts and feelings, learned about each other’s faults, and have set yourself on the road of forgiveness, you should consider spending more quality time with your partner. This clearly doesn’t mean that you spend every waking minute with each other, but it means having a more fruitful, lively time together rather than just having your whole time together. Remember, it’s always quality over quantity. Spending time with each other and learning how to have fun with each other again may help in patching up the wounds of the relationship. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or expensive; just a movie night or a dinner out to a restaurant would be a perfect way to spend time together.
STEP 6: Realize that the healing process is a process that you cannot speed up. Although you two are in good terms now, it doesn’t mean that you have completely healed your wounds, and he has as well. Relationships require a lot of dedication and work and you need to make sure that you work on it every day. The change doesn’t happen overnight; it’s a process that you must oversee and look after.
