Day Thirty-Three: Stay Positive

The past couple of weeks have flown by! It’s hard to believe how quickly time is passing…

One of the reasons I believe we’re handling this separation so well is our positivity. Whenever we talk, we try to emphasize the good things in our life. We talk about the activities we did and the all of our goals or upcoming events. If we ate feeling down about something we do calmly discuss it and then its right back into telling jokes and having Netflix dates.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay happy while in a LDR. Obviously sadness will creep up on you when you’re alone or when you really want to chat with your partner and they’re sleeping…but if you really think about it, these are all petty things. All of the things that really matter are still there. So you need to stay optimistic and enjoy what you always have…

Enjoy your relationship like you always have because it hasn’t changed that much. Feeling lonely? Try enjoying this chance to be with yourself and learn about yourself. Feeling sad? Think how happy you’ll be when you’re together again! Feeling like it’s too hard? If you love each other, nothing is too hard.

Stay positive. Stay strong. Stay together.

  1. My wife and I did long distance for two years before we were married. There are so many great things about it. If you make communication a priority as all you can do is communicate, you get to build an incredible foundation based on a strong friendship.
    As you also said, focus on the good. It is really easy to get down. For a time we started our conversation with something that we were thankful for. God bless!
