Long Distance Relationships need trusts,respects,faith,understanding,time,efforts,etc... But what happens when it comes to the internal depression of missing him/her soooo much? Cheer up..:) Read the positive aspects of LDR and find out that The Long Distance Relationship worth it :)
Positive aspects of LDR;
1. The Effective Communication
A study by Cornell University revealed that, while couples in a "normal relationship" tend to have more daily interactions than couples in a long-distance relationship, the couples who had hundreds of miles in between them tend to have longer, and more meaningful conversations. And those in a Long Distance Relationship reported feeling a stronger bond than couples who lived in the same city. They also claimed to feel their partners shared more of their thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
Its just so true.. Hans and I have a super long meaningful or even the 'whatever' conversation everyday. We shared more of our thoughts, feelings and emotions. And we also never run out of topics because we don't get to see each other everyday.
In addition, The effective communication leads to a better relationship in any kind of way, because even the 'normal' couples that interact daily but have a bad communications, they wont work out.
2. More Independent / Individual Growth
In a long distance relationship, you have time to discover the person you are. You have time to think about your own values, your own goals, and your individual persona. And I think It's a good starter for a healthy relationship, you won't be too relying on your partner, You have to love yourself before loving someone else. And you will learn on how to make a decision by yourself with or without help, you get to do it yourself. And it's a good thing.
3. Commitment / The True Love
Commitment in a Long Distance Relationship is a must. Otherwise, you're just wasting your time and the hours of Skypes and long flights just don't seem worth it. I also heard about sayings that If you can survive a long distance relationship, you can survive anything in a relationship. It worth the wait <3
Distance teaches you and your partner the value of your relationship, as well as greater appreciation for the time you two get to spend together. Missing the laugh, jokes, company, or even wishing he/she were here with you. This is not bad; it just shows you how much you love your partner.
5. Plans and Surprises
This is the Loveliest part from The Long Distance Relationship, Plans and Surprises! You and your partner will be more concern on the future plans together, the holidays, visits, long term plans, etc. And also, you will be more concern about gifts and things that you prepare to surprise him/her. Love shower! <3
You can have more 'me time' ... well, or maybe a lot of me time .... but still, enjoy! <3 because it doesn't stay like this forever! You don't get plenty 'me time'when you're married! lol
We just have to be more patient and understanding, knowing that the memories and the time you spent worth it. Don't give up. Every relationship has it's own problems. Write your own story and make a good one.
