Distance is the extent or amount of space between two things, points or lines. It may also be defined as the state or fact of being apart in space, as of one thing from another. We can always define the word distance in a way for it to fit the situation we want to describe, but distance can never define a person’s love for another.
Many of us are afraid of being in a distance when it comes to relationships. Somehow, people have equated distance to break ups when it does not necessarily apply to all cases of long distance relationships. In one way or another, someone who has never been in the said relationship has made a theory about it. Why do I say theory? It is because I couldn’t think of any rationale which explains that being apart will always result to a break up.
Relationships are risks. Long distance relationships are one of the greatest risks, that is probably one of the reasons why not many opt for it. I once was afraid of taking the risk but eventually, I took it. I took the risk not for the sake of taking a risk but because I knew that it was going to be worth it. If we keep on doing the same things, we are going to end up with the same results, right? If you think that long distance relationships are not going to work, why don’t you try it before you spread that around? At least you can share your own experience and give out solid reasons why it worked or why it didn’t.
If you come to think about it, distance is just a test. If you can last being in a long distance relationship, it just proves how true your love for your partner is. Also, when you both can survive and go the distance, you can safely say that the attraction is not merely physical but something much more than that. When your love is this true, you can be assured that it is going to last. Do not be afraid to take the risk because whenever you need advices, there are plenty that you can seek.
Before you get into a relationship, weigh things first. See if you are ready for such a relationship. If you think you’re not ready, then don’t go into one. Be patient and wait. When you are ready, you will know it soon enough.
