Question:any hope on a 5yr relationship which was broken once, apart for 6mos?

Realized still long for each other after all, love still prevailed under lots of ugly circumstances and willing to work through cultural, lifestyle differences once again. Main reason, have all other necessary ingredients to make a successful one. Got apart and involved with a new potential relationship but not enough to superseed my expectations and the way I loved before...so letting this one go and taking a break to sort things out, lots of fear, lots of promises,time apart made us realize how much it was lost. Please advice, feedback is welcome
