I’m sitting here in my bed writing away , a gentle breeze blowing in through my window and the light rhythmic patter of the rain relaxes me. These are my most favourite times where I enjoy being alone to think and reflect . Sometimes not even to think at all , leave my mind blank and let it wander . Let everything pause for even just a moment , it’s so quiet I could hear myself breathe and my heart beating.
The song that’s playing right now makes me miss my gf. The words that keep repeating “So bring me the night , send out the stars cause when I’m dreaming , we don’t seem so far. Darken the sky and light up the moon so that somehow you’ll be here with me soon”. My gf and I are in a long distance relationship , I’ve learned so much from being in such a relationship and sharing it with her.
Honestly I don’t envy those who have relationships where they are in the same place . There is just something adventurous , romantic about being long distance .
With every meet up , date and upon seeing each other. You get the same feeling as you do when you first fell in love , it’s an absolutely beautiful. It also fulfills my love of travel , I go to her city to see her , she takes me everywhere to show me all these new places that she wants to share with me.
I also do the same when she comes over to my city . It’s always bright , warming and I have to admit like a child who is new to exploration of the world ,my excitement never ends no matter how many times I visit or when she comes over .
With every visit , we really learn to make use of all the time we have together . Not a single moment we have is ever wasted.
Another favourite thing of mine is still being old fashioned and sending each other surprise letters and care packages in the mail , I like having someone who I can be sentimental with .
Overall the best thing about being in a long distance relationship is the strong use of communication. Not being able to see other often, our use of words has to be clear and thorough to prevent misunderstanding .
Communication, this is the thing that many don’t work on everyday and it’s one of the biggest things that destroys any relationship or friendship .
My gf and I try our best to work on it everyday and I feel it growing stronger everyday strengthening the relationship we share together.
