It would seem, only recently you were happy, kissing to the accompaniment of cheerful shouts: "Bitterly!" and "Happiness to young people!". No matter, what became the reason of misunderstanding and parting. It is much more important to keep the warm-heartedness remains for the person who once was so dear to you.
Forgiveness - a way to friendship
To forgive the former spouse or the spouse, it is necessary to sit down at the negotiating table. Do not wait for the first step, muffle an inappropriate voice of pride and call the former partner on a conversation. Keep patience if the person is not ready to talk to you yet. Appoint date of a meeting when both of you are ready to discuss current situation quietly.
In a conversation do not use the phrases beginning with a pronoun "You" ("you were...", "you made...", "you offended...", etc.). It is charge tactics, and it is perceived aurally as aggression.
Tell about the experiences, but without compassionate notes be in good voice and using "I" as little as possible. For example, replace "I so suffered (suffered)" on a phrase: "You know, to me it was sore when we could not come to understanding in this problem". Thereby, you will also tell about yourself, and will show that the partner is not indifferent for you. As motivation to the friendly union the phrases proposing a solution can serve: "Give we...", "If you want, I can...". Try not to ask how now the person without you lives. You left, and private life of everyone - a side which cannot be crossed. If the former spouse or the spouse want, they will tell the secrets, but already at a friendship stage. Adequately and objectively estimate the causes of your last conflicts. In case of your fault, recognize it and sincerely regret.
