Long Distance Shouldn’t Have to End a Relationship

Being in a relationship with a significant other is difficult no matter what. There is no argument about that. The constant need to support and communicate with each other is beneficial for many reasons that are all worth it at some point or the other. You are with that person specifically because there is an interest in each other that is on a deeper and more profound level than just a simple friendship. There is obviously hard work that needs to be put into your relationship, but it takes much more work and commitment when it comes to long distance. The difficulty throughout the whole entire process should not be the main factor that harms your relationship. Instead, it should be a way to build a stronger foundation with your significant others that progresses into the future.

There are many different types of circumstances that can be the reasoning behind a long distance relationship. Whether it may be because of going to schools in different states, being in a relationship where one is in the military, or a job offer that one cannot pass up on, they are hard work for many different reasons. Finding the time to communicate within your separate and busy lives can be difficult at at times as well. People always say that ‘long distance relationships never work out,’ and while often times a lot of them don’t, there are very many that do end in the best situation possible that makes everyone happy at the end of the day.
