I heard that line from the song “Long Distance” and it’s true–this long distance is killing me.
Being away from someone so dear, may it be temporary or permanent–just hurts too much. Specially when you have been so accustomed to being so near with a person, a thing, or a memory.
I am aware. I even tried to practice being away or at most, lessening proximity. But I felt spending the remaining times close with him–even closer. I violated my personal space and allowed him to know me more than anyone could. I allowed him to make me comfortable with every moment I feel him near me.
I would always say that: ‘it is just too hard to break something that already became your habit’. He became a habit–my habit.
Being with him gives me an assurance, that every day is special and worth remembering. Being with him makes me feel that life is full of surprises and that I need not to worry too much. Being with him allowed me to look forward for tomorrow and thank the day for it has been good to me.
I am looking at this part as an opportunity to grow and allow our relationship to take on the next stop of the life road. I wrote him a letter before going which says that: “not all relationships are given this opportunity to grow while being apart”.
I know of some relationships that works so well while they are both in school and in the same workplace but when the time came that someone have to move away, the relationship also moved apart with it. Rarely are those couples that can withstand the phase which is known as “Long Distance Relationship”.
And I salute them for it.
I am sure that the moment we get through this phase, the rest of the challenges would relatively be easier to handle. I am worried at the same time excited. I am iffy if we can get through this but it would be against the virtue of trust if I will not believe that we can do it. I am also excited because I want to see how we will handle things out.
Communication will definitely play a major role in making this relationship work out. I just have to keep in mind that proximity is just a parcel in the communication process, hence, it still rests on our hands to keep distance a positive reinforcement.
