Last week I was extremely offended by some statements made to me about my relationship and another negative comment about my blogging. Some people are unsupportive, ignorant, and down-right rude. It has been a long time since I’ve been so hurt and upset by opposition to my LDR with Jay because people have been very accepting for the most part. I came home in a horrid mood and turned to the internet for some stress relief. I found myself searching for reassurance of something I already know is amazing and although I wish I wasn’t so upset by what somebody else thinks, I found a great quote to express how I feel:
Nobody else is qualified enough to determine whether my LDR is legitimate or not except for Jay. We are the only two people that matter in this case. Love is a mysterious feeling that creeps into our hearts at the most unexpected times. Love is a power that nobody can measure, not even those experiencing it. Love is so powerful that we cannot even know it’s true power. But I do know one thing…
I believe in the immeasureable power of love, that true love can endure any circumstances and reach across any distance
Love is more than a feeling, it’s a force. Love can bond two people closer together when the distance between them is growing larger. It can make me smile at the simplest thought and keep me sane when everything around me seems to be falling apart. I don’t need to see Jay every day or even speak with him to feel a connection to him. Jay is there and I am here, but we are both together. It’s not something I need to think about or something I ever question.
Love bridges us together no matter where in the world we may be or when we will see each other again. It defies all odds, taking down all of the obstacles that come with our LDR and rising above any opposition. Nobody will ever be able to explain or properly describe the phenomenon of love but everyone should accept that love can bond any two people together, regardless of their geographical location or any other differences.
I may never know why people demean other people’s decision to be in a LDR, but I’m going to ignore their ignorance. I need only think of Jay and I know everything is worth it. Our love is more powerful than the opinions of those against us.
