A pure and true relationship is something which is not achieved by everyone. Love is hard and it is harder to maintain a relationship. But the harder it gets, the softer and more transparent the relationship becomes. It is harder to maintain when it comes to a long distance relationships. It depends on the attitude of lovers to how to make their relationship a consolidated one. Following are 10 things which I believe can be applied to fortify a long distance relationship.
A long distance relationship could work only on the principle of sheer patience. It is obvious in this case that, both persons may not possibly be free simultaneously. One may be drowning in hectic workload and other unknowingly might keep calling that person. In such an instance we have to apply the parameter of PATIENCE. Trust me guys, the result of patience is always to be cherished.
All relationships must be forged in the fires of TRUST. Once the trust gets wounded, it is difficult to get it healed. My point here is, you need not to jump to the thought that the other has broken your trust just because he/she is unavailable at the moment. Nothing ever happens according to our plans. Life is all about surprises and unexpected stuff. So hold on to your belief in trust unless you catch that person red-handed.
- NO HIDING
Being away from your partner,it is natural that he/she would have no idea what all things are happening around you.In a relationship,it is not appropriate to conceal yourself from the other person.Though he/she is away from you,open up your mind to him/her.Narrate your daily life. Who knows ,sometimes your life knows can serve as a energy booster to the other.
- FIX A TIME
We are all cobwebbed in a busy life. None have time for themselves. Such circumstances should not affect your relationship. I think it will be better to fix a time schedule which is suitable for both, which could be spent on calling/texting. It has another perspective too. We would try to complete all our work before the planned time. 😉
- LET OTHER KNOW THE REASON
When we fix a time, to spend on communicating with our distant beloved, we naturally develop the process of expectation. Expectation can lead to disaster at times.So, let your partner know beforehand if you can’t show up at the scheduled time.
- DON’T YELL ON THE PHONE
People can’t be always in a happy mood. Our mind gets deflected even with a silly matter. If we are frustrated, because of some external stuff, never ever blow it out on phone. Our partner need not know the cause of our stress. So there is a chance, they may get irritated too. So speak out your anxiety and try to solve it with your partner.
- DON’T RESTRICT: ALLOW THEIR SPACE
Partners must grant each other an individual space of their own. Being physically away and telling the other one a complete NO to whatever he/she asks may not draw a positive result. Constant and unnecessary NO can plant seeds of insecurities. It may make the other feel that their partner doesn’t have trust in them.
- ELIXIR OF WORDS
Words have a way of bringing a smile to our face. So even if you are away you could make your partner glow with joy with your words covered in true care and love. Your partner may be yearning to listen to your voice which is much like an elixir. So make them happy with your words.
- MEET ONCE A MONTH
No rule and principle can work unless you show up before him/her. Meet your partner atleast once a month and spend a day weaving memories which will remain forever
- A POSITIVE MIND
A positive and un-conflicted mind is all you need in a relationship, whether it be a short or a long distance one.Try to be the problem solver in the life of the other one. Try to take all that happens with you and your partner in a strong and positive manner and make it your hope.
