I share this piece as I suddenly remember
a friend once asked me about how I keep up with a long-distance relationship, while she and her partner who have never been apart, lack of depth and intimacy.
Honestly, I'm not a love guru or someone in capacity to give her suggestion. I mean I've never struggled between demanding job and baby running out of diaper. My experience is to juggle between my reality and my dream job "...but it doesn't mean that you can't try to fit my her situation.", she said. Long story short, I gave her an advice based on my experiences.
All I know that to be in a distance of any kind relationship really needs an effort from both side. The taking and giving, the balance, the harmony, along with the challenges not to turn the relationship too spicy or too boring. I've been through this and I'm still, regardless of the situation that we both happen to share similar traits and find it rather easy to counter and relate with each other.
It's the distance which either a trouble or peacemaker, as I grow fonder of him as well as feel miserable when I realize I'm all by myself when I miss his presence.
So what do I do?
I simply do things as simple as using my gifts to express my thoughts and emotions, like what I'm doing now. I draw and I write and foremost, I enjoy our togetherness in this limited physical space but infinity of mind. He applies the same thing but in different form due to few limitations. This way works for us and creates our bond much stronger than many years before.
I sound like I was suggesting my friend to get emotionally attached with her partner but yeah, it's what I've been doing. I'm just aware that any relationship requires a solid ground and I suggested her to do so if she doesn't want to be sorry in the future.
I told her to do what best she can do within her situation and try not to get his interest but to make him feel loved. Only this way, she can expect more of his love and reconnect with his emotions like they used to. I genuinely wish she can work her issue out.
