‘Relationships are not like the way they used to be once’, ‘Relationship is just a source of fun for millennials nowadays’, we have often heard these comments and opinions of our parents and their parents about us and our generation. These are just the opinions that have been formed because they have heard or have seen some unsuccessful relationships.
Saying an unsuccessful relation to be fake is the matter of wrong interpretation and wrong use of words. However, the truth rests in the fact that even today, many people fall in sincere love and get committed to each other.
An ultimate example which has proven this fact is a long-distance relationship. People often believe that most of the long-distance relationships are unsuccessful which ends due to time issues, loyalty issues or they stop due to change in the priorities of two people which gets directly influenced by their immediate surroundings.
Actually, those people are among the gems who fights against all the odds for relationship and makes it meant forever.
Being in a long-distance relationship is among the most bittersweet experience that one can have. It gives the feeling of empowerment when both the person stands together even after the hard times. In the other hand sometimes it feels like broken and the physical distance seems like making them drift apart emotionally due to the lack of time that one gets to spend with the other.
What can actually help in situations like this?
Understanding and hope:
These are the only two instruments that can enlighten the relationship with power and strength, thus making it long-lasting.
How does it feel in a long-distance relationship when they see some other couple going for a movie, or eating and sharing food, or a couple who is shopping together for each other, or giving surprise to his or her partner on their birthdays?
It’s obviously not pleasant in any sense, because there are some moments in life when one needs his or her partner badly but they just can’t.
Long-distance relationships offer happiness and quality time in small packets or instalments. This makes it furthermore interesting, because when a person is deprived of something and later provided for a restricted time, then it helps one to realise how important, valuable and precious those moments of togetherness are.
People in a long-distance relationship need to synchronise their activities and time with each other to maintain peace and calmness in their relationship.
The pace with which the understanding and maturity grow in people in a long-distance relationship is much more than other relationships. It is because that is the spine of its existence; without understanding and maturity, it cannot exist.
It is difficult to survive in such a relationship because it requires loyalty, courage, bravery and strength to tolerate emotional suffering, but it’s not impossible.
