To The Best Friends I Don't Get To See That Often,

If I knew then what I do now, I would have soaked up every last minute of freedom with my high school friends. It can be really difficult to make the transition to college without having your oldest and closest friends by your side. Although time apart can make everything seem that much harder, it makes seeing them every once in a while one of the best feelings in the world. Our lives have changed drastically, yet so many things have stayed the same. That being said, there is so much I would like to say to them for always being there.

Thank you for always being a text, phone call, or FaceTime away when I need it most.

Thank you for sending me Snapchats or pictures of things that you knew would make me laugh.

Thank you for always being available to talk when I feel as if no one at school gets me like you do.

Thank you for making me feel better when I've had a long week.

Thank you for being honest with me so that I can become a better version of myself.

Thank you for

Thank you for validating me when no one else sees what you do.

Thank you for the late-night talks when college gets the best of us both.

Thank you for reminding me of who I am when I lose touch of myself.

Thank you for giving me advice that only you could think of.

Thank you for looking forward to seeing me again on breaks and holidays.

Thank you for the coffee and breakfast dates when we are finally home at the same time.

Most importantly...

Thank you for always being there.

The One Thing They Don't Tell You About Long-Distance Relationships

Don't just survive it, thrive at it.

211

If you've ever been in a long-distance relationship, you've probably asked yourself more than once "Why is this happening to me? I mean… of all people, why ME?!"

Long-distance relationships aren't anyone's cup of tea because, let's face it, it sucks to be in that situation. But what if you could make it a more positive experience by being strong and developing mental fortitude?

Does absence make the heart grow fonder?

Indeed, it does. But at some point, things become difficult and you feel completely stuck. If it's true love, it will always work out. You both will persevere, and you'll be two better people for it.

If it's meh or ordinary love, the chances of the long-distance relationship failing are higher. Both partners need to put in the effort to see the results, and that only happens when you really care for someone.

Distance is painful — but it gets easier over time.

There's a harsh reality that anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship will tell you: Insecurity will constantly play with your mind. The trust between you two will falter every now and then. Communication (or the lack thereof) will either drive you apart or closer together. The breakups won't be any easier (than the real thing). The makeups won't feel as good (as the real thing).

Fear may handcuff you. Fear may confuse you. Fear may destroy you. Don't let the "what ifs" consume you. Stay faithful and expect the same from your partner.

People will feel sorry for you to the extent that you'll start feeling sorry for yourself. However, modern-day technology will definitely help bridge the distance, so use it well.

Nothing worth having comes easy.

It takes a lot of work to keep things hot and heavy all the time, and trust me, that's what you want! But are you willing to put in the necessary ingredients to spice things up? You have to be open to trying new things, breaking out of your comfort zone every now and then.

If a couple can survive a long-distance relationship, they can practically survive anything together.

Truth be told, they aren't as problematic and unrealistic as people may think. The stress will only seep through when you let it. Long-distance relationships can be refreshing and liberating. They'll keep you busy and help you to be more independent and self-sufficient.

They'll also teach you about the importance of sacrifice, perseverance and communication. As a result, no matter how the relationship plays out, you'll be stronger and wiser for it.

Don't just survive it, thrive at it.

I love my long-distance fiancé more than life itself, so I'm willing to do anything for him.

Instead of condemning the universe, embrace the challenge and make the best out of the situation.

"Distance simply means separation in place but never in connections. Heart remains inseparable." ― DhelChen
