I read in a book that casualties doesn’t exist. That everything is written between the clouds and stars with invisible ink. That people get mixed in other people’s story pages to share and star in a pre-established script. That we are all lead and secondary characters depending on the part of the movie we are in. Don’t you think it’s an amazing way to talk about the people that are destined to be in your life?
It’s scary how people take residence in your heart. When you are in LDR the feeling of missing that special someone never goes away. You cant help the longing you feel when without knowing it there isn’t a single day that passes without you thinking about silly conversations, crying while remembering the strength it takes to have this kind of relationship or when you daydream about a future together.
That day, you know they have an apartment in the condo of your heart. You now live between two worlds…yours and theirs. It feels like you are just waiting and wishing until those worlds collide and you can start calling it “our world”.
In the meantime the are a lot of things that help. In my LDR I learned to keep my SO updated about my day because he isn’t there with me and that help us to feel a little more connected. I learned that a simple detail like a call in the middle of the day, a text, pictures, sending him things, can make the waiting easier. Keeping a countdown where you can see it helps to keep your spirits up and reminds you that what you are building day by day is real. It takes time, patience, courage and determination but in the end, when you don’t have to miss your SO anymore, you will know it was worth it. The Waiting (for the next call, text or visit), the wishing (to be finally together)… you will look back knowing it only made your relationship stronger, better.
I miss my SO like crazy when he is not around. After two years I understand that missing someone is like the love you feel for them, it never stops growing. The people we love become part of ourselves, even when they are so far away.
