Reconnect with the Ex? What You Need To Know Before You Give It Another Go

You may not like the outcome, as the two of you may not see eye to eye about your future together. But it's better to address the issues now and go your separate ways, than reunite and get your heart broken all over again.

Reviving a relationship with your ex can be tricky, but it's not impossible. You both need to be equally committed, willing to forgive, and able to reconnect from a place of love and respect. While the odds may seem stacked against you, if you give it your best efforts, you may enjoy a healthier and happier relationship the second time around.

Ready to get over your ex once and for all? Pick up copies of my books It's A Breakup Not A Breakdown: Get over the big one and change your life - for good! and It's a Breakup, Not a Breakdown Workbook: A 21-Day Action Plan to Plot Your Revenge, Spoil Yourself, and Find Out How Good Your Life Is Without Him
