"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough."
Distance is the hardest affair in a relationship. It is arduous. It is scary, unpredictable and at times can feel as though no matter what you do nothing will get easier. Thankfully, it gets easier when that distance is shortened, even if only for a few days.
And those few days make it entirely worth it.
To just be surrounded by someone, to come home to them, is worth more than anything else in the world. And I don't say that to sound cliche, to trick others into thinking that that is the reason I remain in a long-distance relationship. I say it because whenever I'm with him there is a calm, knowing that things will be alright.
I try to keep this blog impersonal, but sometimes it's unavoidable, and that's okay.
