YOUR GUIDE TO SURVIVING LONG DISTANCE LOVE

YOUR GUIDE TO SURVIVING LONG DISTANCE LOVE

My lived experience describes love as a way to promote one’s overall well-being, it influences our behaviours and whether or not we are having a pleasant time on earth. It is our duty to make life beautiful, and peaceful, and love forms part of the many ways we live wholesomely.

Today I wanted to remind you to soar in the best way you know how even if soaring for you means reading affirming content about surviving long-distance love. I know many can relate and others may be embarking on this complex journey – You are not alone plus you can successfully navigate what may be beyond your control.

Communicate Daily


This is all you have – for as long you both want it to work you have to make communication a priority.
Share the good and the bad of how your day is going this way you are both not missing out on each other’s daily life.
Mix it up by using images, video calls, social media, and meme sharing – those have kept many conversations alive.
• At times it takes a simple daily good morning text and good night text to get one through.
Be clear, direct, and honest all the time.

Effort


Introduce them to your friends and family over video calls, that’s if you’re ready for that step. Introductions have a way of adding a different dynamic and show your partner that they are indeed a real part of your life and not some ‘imaginary figure.’
Involve one another in your daily activities – Video calling while taking a daily walk feels good – it will feel like you are taking the walk together, plus there’s an indescribable feeling of safety.

Get excited about the things you can’t wait to do/share together


• If it means creating itineraries, lists of restaurants, and lists of movies you want to watch together do exactly that.
• The key is in knowing that this is not forever and that in the future you will be spending every possible second together – The distance has to end at some point.
Stay out of situations that might make your long-distance partner feel uncomfortable or threatened.
Set boundaries that are within reason that work for you both.

Distance provides clarity on how much you trust your partner;
• Try your best to reassure your partner.
• Try to avoid thinking about the worst-case scenario.
• There are bumps of course but communicating about the struggles helps a whole lot.
