Long Distance Relationship

Life Quote: "What I have with him is worth it. It is worth every lonely night, every tear I cry from missing him, and the pain I feel from not having him close. It is worth it because he is my one and only. When I picture myself years from now, I see only him. No matter how painful distance can be, not having him in my life would be worse."This life quote is a classic example of what people involved in long distance relationships have to go through each and every single day without their loved ones by their side. The passage is beautiful, and heartfelt, and it really speaks of sadness, and longing… of enduring love.

There are those people who CHOOSE to endure the pain, because they know in their hearts that it’s really worth it. There are a lot of reasons why there are so many long distance relationships in the world. Most common reason I think is WORK. One partner has to go away to work and the other’s left behind. Another issue is, GEOGRAPHY. You meet someone who lives far far away and is geographically undesirable but you feel something special for him, and you just can’t let it pass.I think regardless of the reason, the hard earned fact still remains. Long distance relationships are ridiculously painful! Especially if you’re both really in love with each other, and it’s a really serious relationship (not just some superficial fling). We’re talking about real, deep, profound kind of love.

When the absence of your loved one, is really killing you, tearing your heart apart. And just when you’re almost ready to give up… you realize… you really really love him. And you want to be with him so much, you realize you’re willing to wait. And hang on to a hope, that someday, you’ll be together again.On the other hand, there are also lots of people who don’t really mind having long distance relationships. Of course, we are all different when it comes to love, right? For those who are involved in a long distance relationship, really look into your heart, remember the above life quote and ask yourself, “Is this worth it?” Then let the answer to that question guide you to what you should do next.
