Patching up an already bizarre relationship needs honesty with determination. Forget about who you are, what are your achievements, what you have done,...just remember, your goal is to woo back your love. For a moment, shed off your EGO,...love just don't need your bank balance, credit cards, cars, properties or honours.
If you value the relationship, just don't hesitate to say sorry, even if the mistake was not from your side. The person is your love, don't feel inferior for the "sorry" you had offered; you can take back your apology if you were not wrong, only after the relationship is back to normal. Just remember the smile, petty petty things that you shared together in happier times...just forget the dirty words uttered while fighting, or the arrogant attitude shown in bad times.
Well, you have done a good job, got recognition and appreciation. You have a bright future now too. But life is not all about politics my dear. Just remember who help you in reaching up to this position!
Patch up, and chill out together in this deadly summer to a nice and cool place. Your simple one word 'SORRY' will pay you back thousands of cosy moments. Its late but not too late. Better late than never.
