Rebuilding your relationship with yourself is the first step in the right direction. You may have to take the first step while you are still afraid.
When your relationship with you sucks, you cannot be the kind of person your partner needs you to be. Work on you first. The relationship is a close second. Two broken people cannot fix each other. If you want to fix your relationship, start by fixing yourself.
Only you can do the work that you know must be done. I stress “know” because everyone knows himself or herself better than anyone does.
If you truly want out of a relationship slump, you must begin to be honest with what needs to be fixed within you.
Never blame others for how you feel. How you choose to feel is only and always a personal choice!
Learning to love yourself teaches you to love others. Learn to love you. Only then can you offer the kind of love your partner needs. Only then.
