I’m not going to lie to you, long-distance relationships are probably the toughest kind of relationships, the ones that actually require you to give in every single thing you’ve got, the ones that can turn you into the one of the most frustrated people on the planet and the ones that can actually make you start questioning your sanity at times where you just can’t begin to understand why you ever agreed to put yourself though this.
But at the end of the day, when all is said and done, when all your heart and soul has been put into this one part of your life, you will know and be proud of the fact that your relationship has come out a lot stronger and has become more resilient than an average relationship could ever be.
Here are 5 reasons why:
- Trust is an essential part of your relationship from the very start
You’re living miles away. You can’t even meet each other every week, let alone every day. The only access you have to their everyday life is what and how much they will tell you about it. And they are the only source that can explain and help you understand their relationships with all the different people in their life.
So the moment you agree to being in a long-distance relationship with them, you are essentially agreeing to trust them about every single aspect of their life, to trust that they’ll always tell you the complete and honest truth and to put your faith in the fact that this person you’re willing to do so much for won’t cheat or hurt you, even when you’re not there to keep a check on them.
- You learn to appreciate your partner more
It really, really sucks to live so far away. You will have some horrible days when the only thing you feel like doing is to run away from this life of yours and just go hide yourself in their arms. You’ll be willing to do just about anything only to see them once, to feel the warmth of their skin against yours for just a single moment.
And this is exactly the reason why when you’ll finally get this one person that you had desired for so long, when you’ll finally get to hug them tight and spend your entire day with them doing the most random stuff, you’ll learn to appreciate all of it even more. You’ll value each and every minute that you have together and there will rarely come a point in your relationship where you’ll start taking things for granted.
