It takes two

"Long distance is hard. You have to trust that as you each change on your own, your relationship will also change along with you. It takes hope, good humor, and idealism. It takes a massive dose of courage to protect the relationship at all odds. It is hard, but worth it. You'll both be stronger as a result." 

— Craig M. Mullaney

Any relationship a person may have will always take two. A romantic relationship takes a little bit more. Communication is key. We can't get mad over the little things. Sometimes communication may just be a tiny email saying, "been really busy. I love you". Sometimes we are lucky to get an email at all. But we can't let that get us down. It's rough but we know that as soon as we can we will talk. Trust, that is a major aspect of relationships. Without trust things will be hard. There is so much more that must go into just a typical relationship. 

Long distance relationships take a lot more. It's something many dread but suck it up and continue on anyways. We each change individually, which means our relationship will change as well. We have to learn to laugh at things that may piss us off. It takes Strength, Courage, and Sacrifice. Some never have to make a sacrifice of living away from their loved ones like others do. We have to go through the ins and outs for our relationship. It feels we have to go through so much more apart. But that isn't true, it's the around the same amount. We just notice it more because we are forced to make decisions alone. In the end though, as a couple, are stronger than you began.

Anyone have anything to say about long distance relationships, I may not have covered?
