When my Mom's family were living in exile as political refugees in Boston, my Dad had to deal with that. Mind you that there was no internet nor Skype nor text messaging. Life was hard back then. But they still ended up together.
Relationships should never be a one way thing. That's why it's called a relationship right? Anyway, it takes 2 to tango as they say. But nothing's perfect. You have to work at it. I think most of the time, we take things for granted. You'll never realize what's important until it's gone. But why wait for it to happen? You have to work at it.
Why am I writing about this? Well, I have friends who are in long distance relationships. They worked at it and they're going strong. No matter how far that loved one is, I think what's important is that the love is still there. Yes you cannot physically touch that person but there are compromises right? It's a give and take thing. But here's my two cents. Never give up on a loved one... "Kung gusto, maraming paraan. Kung ayaw, maraming dahilan."
Faith and Love... that's what you need I believe.
