Yes, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Everyone likes to assume the worst with long distance relationships, essentially because of how often people make it out to be this sort of unrealistic game to which no one wins. I mean, a normal relationship itself is hard enough for people to acquire since no one likes to be serious in them, so just imagine the reality of a long distance relationship.
You have to work hard, for yourself and for the relationship, in order to see the good come out of it. No one chooses the LDR life, sometimes it happens to choose you ... and that’s the beauty of it.
Having been in one, let me tell you, it’s VERY difficult. Difficult in the sense that you will sometimes forget about your own well-being. You become numb to the pain after awhile, but you still hurt when the numbness disappears because HEY, you’re human.
Humans hurt, especially when they can’t see the one person they love dearly.
It’s almost like going window-shopping. You want to buy everything, but you can’t and it really bothers you to the point that it puts your emotions in a state of flux.
Long distance relationships won’t always be long distance, either. The long distance aspect can leave completely within time, if you are serious about it.
Sometimes long distance relationships can eventually grow into something much larger, like marriage. That’s what happened to me. Yes, you’ll want to give up. Yes, you probably will a few times. But if you love that person more than the distance, you will find that love can come from unexpected doubts so don’t give up too easily.
You will have many nights that will result in tears, but after all the terrible and lonely nights suffered, you will be reunited with your best friend and it will all seem to dissipate in an instant. If you don’t believe me, read the quotes and see for yourself!

"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It is for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It is for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough."
"Years from now, our past will be a story. A story of long days and lonely nights, hard work and lack of sleep.
