There are a lot of relationships that failed because of what we call long distance kind of commitment. Being apart from each other is not easy. It’s the reason why some good relationships have come to an end. Here are some of the things that you can do if you want to survive a long distance relationship.
Set your goals
The initial thing that you have to do is establish the goals for the both of you. Long distance relationship will not be an easy road, and most importantly, you cannot stay like that forever. At one point or another, one of you will have to make a decision about who is moving so you can be together. Set a timeline on how long you have to endure being apart from each other.
Create some rules
It doesn’t necessarily mean that you will have to suffocate each other. The important thing is you will have the basis of what you should expect from each other. The best example is if there is a need for you to touch base with each other at least during the day or if it is alright that the two of you can entertain other people. It is up to what your agreement will be.
If you are in a long distance relationship, there will be times that you will not be able to stop yourself from thinking of negative things. There is nothing you can do, and the worst part is you will just make yourself miserable if you entertain the negative thoughts in your mind. You need to have an absolute trust with each other if you want to get through this kind of relationship.
The path will not be easy, but couples who survived a long distance relationship are believed to be stronger than the others.
