So, when I was younger, from like 14-18, I was in love with this guy named Jaylen. He was my first love as well as my first “long-distance love”.
Our relationship was a little super crazy.
So, when it finally ended I made a declaration that I would never ever ever ever do that again. Told my friends, told my family, and told God. I was serious.
Fast forward present day, and Look a Here.
I’m in a Long-Distance Relationship.
It’s funny because I’ve always heard you should never say what you “won’t do again”. Because you never know what you “will do again”. Lord, if that is not true.
When I was with Jaylen I had a hard time with trust, I had a hard time with loyalty, and I had a hard time being by myself.
This time Something Was Different….
Well first-of-all, I cannot not mention how much I am totally head over heels in love with this man I am with today. So that helps.
But I know the supreme reason and the ultimate factor for why I was able to do it again and why I gave Long Distance Love another try is simply:
“I learned from my past relationship and I grew as a woman.”
Those two things I did not take into consideration when I made my declaration of never doing this again.
I no longer have issues with being by myself, because I took the time to really and thoroughly enjoy and get to know myself. (Insteaddddd of looking for this comfort in someone else) I now pay attention to my body, began working out, got back in school, and joined a church. Keeping busy and Staying productive. (Look at God)
I no longer have trust issues because I simply now know what trust is. ——-If I don’t trust the person I am with, then why am I with them? Simple as that.
And I no longer have loyalty issues because I began to focus on being the person I wanted to have in my life. How could I have so many expectations for what I wanted in a partner but I didn’t showcase it myself? Naw, I had to get right.
So here I am. Saying I am in a Long Distance relationship and I love it. I love God, I love me and I love him.
