Why Long Distance Relationships Are Worth It

Long distance relationships are like waiting for your food to come at the restaurant, when you finally see it and get to hold it, it's the best feeling in the world.

Why Long Distance Relationships Are Worth It
The Notebook Ice Cream Scene

When I first began my long distance experience I was incredibly nervous and not too thrilled about it. Most long distance relationships start with one going to college or getting a new job. You have one of two choices at that point. Tough it out and see if it works or breakup. It doesn't matter if you're a couple of hours apart, states, or in a whole different country, long distance is long distance. Here is why it is oh so worth it if this person is the one you truly love. Distance means so little when someone means so much.

1. When you finally get to see each other, it's more special than usual.

The moment when you finally get to see each other is like falling in love all over again. When you get to spend this time together, you realize how you used to take it for granted. Even if you are just having a Netflix date, it is still so exciting!

2. There comes a time when your heart will just hurt and it makes you realize how in love you truly are.

When you truly miss someone, it shows you how much you care about that person.

3. You get creative on talking to each other since you can't see each other face to face whenever you want.

You are forced to have great communication. Whether it be texting, phone calls, letters, or FaceTime dates, communication is so important. Through the long distance journey, you learn you don't have to talk to each other 24-7. #hotlinebling

4. You always have something to look forward to.

When you get to see each other every couple of weeks you usually make plans to do something awesome and even if you don't, a simple pizza night in will be something you mark on your calendar.

5. Surprise visits are life.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F13%2F635909777950954984-510652587_802226.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=779&h=787fa2587f716fa8dc91dd6940092c0581c8d8bdf52f0875c732ebdaf3242470&size=980x&c=2117506308 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F13%252F635909777950954984-510652587_802226.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D779%26h%3D787fa2587f716fa8dc91dd6940092c0581c8d8bdf52f0875c732ebdaf3242470%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2117506308%22%7D" expand=1]

The best feeling in the world is when they show up unannounced just because they miss you!

6. Time difference? Psh... I've got this down pat.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F13%2F635909782264462104899558016_tumblr_nrelbtRZAN1t0mavco1_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=692&h=77ba35eb7e33aab62b9bf4fa5d2df91b677df8573f8c4dc65057912a33be1b47&size=980x&c=1059315465 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F13%252F635909782264462104899558016_tumblr_nrelbtRZAN1t0mavco1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D692%26h%3D77ba35eb7e33aab62b9bf4fa5d2df91b677df8573f8c4dc65057912a33be1b47%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1059315465%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether it be across the country or across the world you've managed to make it work.

7. True love knows no distance.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F13%2F6359097897390311191588007959_tumblr_m9sdki4rD21rekzayo1_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=209&h=1497219b1e1d9fcc44a983a64e54c676fa5322bbd758124f641ec575f4717691&size=980x&c=2863151520 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F13%252F6359097897390311191588007959_tumblr_m9sdki4rD21rekzayo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D209%26h%3D1497219b1e1d9fcc44a983a64e54c676fa5322bbd758124f641ec575f4717691%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2863151520%22%7D" expand=1]

If you love each other, and I mean TRULY love each other, being in two different places won’t matter. Distance will not tear you apart because you won’t let it. You find ways to make it work.

8. The longer you have to wait for something, the more you appreciate it.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F13%2F635909780744195124104556302_tumblr_inline_nsl3jxriVT1rol1w1_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=606&h=b0f03c599ab427be740b1acb212eb96999124cad4cf4a69f6c35b6f44e76f074&size=980x&c=2716810328 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F13%252F635909780744195124104556302_tumblr_inline_nsl3jxriVT1rol1w1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D606%26h%3Db0f03c599ab427be740b1acb212eb96999124cad4cf4a69f6c35b6f44e76f074%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2716810328%22%7D" expand=1]

Just like when you're at the restaurant and waiting for the food to come, that moment you see the server coming to your table, yeah that's the same feeling.

9. Faith

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F13%2F635909783850779806-1523234435_Polar-Express.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=927&h=827ae634c5cdc709ec5baecd772f104a64dfaf45143b0fb46985b7dd1fcd0025&size=980x&c=3477555413 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F13%252F635909783850779806-1523234435_Polar-Express.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D927%26h%3D827ae634c5cdc709ec5baecd772f104a64dfaf45143b0fb46985b7dd1fcd0025%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3477555413%22%7D" expand=1]

Having faith in someone or something is having confidence in what you have without having to see it.

10. Of course, it's going to be hard and you're going to miss each other, but if you're truly meant for each other, it will work. You always have the future to look forward to.

Share this with your loved one and let them know that even when times get hard, everything happens for a reason and what's meant to be will find it's way.

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple. Defense lawyers argue that their clients are innocent because they don't want their actions to seem suspect in any way. They essentially say for the sake of the argument itself. If you're trying to decide whether or not becoming a defense attorney is something you would like to do, here are five reasons why it's worth considering:
