I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I had a good start to my weekend but today, I will be honest and say I am feeling very sad. I went back and forth in my mind deciding whether or not to write this post, since this blog is supposed to be focused about exercise and nutrition. But, then I remember that I am a whole person outside of the “diet and fitness” world, and I want to be as transparent and open as I can be. So here goes…
As you can see this blog post is titled “Long Distance Lovin’..” Well, this morning my boyfriend moved to the east coast due to a job promotion with his company. I couldn’t be happier for him and all his hard work and dedication…but selfishly I would love nothing more than to have him here in Chicago, by my side.
My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 2 years now, and boy I can honestly say I am the luckiest girl alive. He is my best friend, soulmate, biggest supporter, and cheerleader since the day I have met him. He is one of the most genuine, honest and caring people I have ever met. I can honestly say I never knew what real love was like until meeting him. He loves me despite all my flaws and quirks and there isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t make me laugh or smile. I am sorry for getting sappy on you guys, but it’s true.
No relationship is perfect, trust me, we have had our ups and downs, but we have made it through it all..together…because of forgiveness, communication, and most importantly love.
I have shed more tears than I would like to admit over his big move, but I know it’s only temporary. He constantly reminds me that he doing what is best for his future and mine. It will take some time for me to adjust to not seeing him whenever I want to, but I know I will be okay. I am so grateful for modern technology ( cell phones, texting, Facetime), I am counting down the days until I see him again. ❤
I really appreciate you guys letting me share a piece of my personal life. I am just a regular ole’ 25 year old who is missing her boyfriend.
Have you ever been in a long distance relationship?
Did you ever feel sad or lonely?
