Okay, so let me just say that Long Distance Relationships (especially Military ones) are not all rainbows and butterflies all the times. Lately I’ve been annoyed with the fact that I have to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars just to spend a weekend with my boyfriend. No one else I know has to do that. I save 99% of my money for tuition and traveling. At times it gets really frustrating. I get jealous of the people around me who don’t have to do this.
I keep thinking, why me? But then I think about how lucky I am. I’m so lucky to be dating this guy who makes me feel all the things and inspires me and motivates me every single day. I wouldn’t be where I am with Jordyn Alison Designs if it weren’t for him.
The absolute worse part about being in a LDR is when someone around you complains about not being able to see their Significant Other in X amount of time. I had someone complain about not being able to be with their SO on his birthday. It just got me thinking about how there are SOO many things I don’t get to do with my boyfriend but yet I don’t complain about it. We don’t spend holidays together, or any time together, really. The more I see people post about being apart from their SO for a couple days, it always grinds my gears. So don’t complain about missing your SO to someone in an LDR. They won’t take it well.
Being in an LDR takes strength and courage and not everyone can handle it. I think those are the people who complain about being away from their loved ones. But, life moves on and another day passes. You can’t get stuck in a rut of feeling bad for yourself or being upset. You’ve gotta move on and move forward with your day.
What challenges do you face in being in an LDR?
