Tomorrow I’m leaving to see my boyfriend. This will be the first time we have seen each other in three and a half months. I have been missing him more than I can express. A long distance relationship is not easy, but it is exactly what I signed up for. It would be much worse to know that I could have had something with someone I care about but I decided to let a few miles get in the way.
He’s one of the most encouraging people in my life. When I’m down or frustrated about not being near him, he’s quick to remind me that distance has no power over anything. A few days ago, I was having a hard time adjusting to my new situation. I told him, in all honesty, that I was missing him and that it hurt to wait so long. He reminded me that I had the means and the power to go to him whenever I wanted to.
The next day, I bought a plane ticket. It was more of a relief than some kind of invigorating realization of power. It was just nice to see that I was capable of doing what I wanted to do. With a little help from those that I love, I always have options.
