Relationships are Rough



Hey, so as people may know, if they've read my last (and first post) I have a girlfriend. As such, we have problems that come up and to make it worse, we are a long distance couple and we can't see each other in person much because of transportation issues as of now. For a while, it has kind of been causing both of us stress... and i'm not to sure how to go about this. For me, I want to continue this relationship and all, but it just makes me... stressed. I just don't know how to go about this and such. For whoever reads this shit storm i just typed up, thanks for reading.

Ack, I'm sorry you're stressed out. :( Long distance is usually hard for most people so it seems normal that you are stressed out. I don't know if there are other sources of stress in your life or career or anything else, but that could also be putting extra stress on your relationship. It is always nice to have someone physically with you to support you and now that you don't have that, stresses from your daily life could be projecting onto your relationship. I've been in a long distance relationship and what ultimately made it fail is because one of us stopped caring enough to fight through issues and talk about them. I guess what I am trying to say is that it will be tough, but since you've said that you want to continue it, you have a lot of hope there that things will get better. ^^ Good luck and I hope you feel better!

Thing about relationships is that they aren't supposed to be easy. They are a test of both parties, how you work through challenges together. You're going to have crappy times. You're going to fight and cry and want to quit. Even the best relationships have that. Why are they the best? Because they worked through them.

On the flip side, they don't just work because they are forced to do so. If the bad outweighs the good, then it's time to communicate with your partner. If you are both unhappy, then maybe a split is inevitable. But if there is anything worth saving about the relationship, then do everything in your power to keep it alive if not only for those fleeting happy moments that make it all worth it.

Best wishes to you both!
