But it’s important to remember that these difficulties are not unique to long distance relationships, and all relationships have their own set of challenges.
It’s also important to remind yourself that you’re not alone, and many people have successfully navigated long-distance relationships. You can also remind yourself that you should have an open and honest communication with your partner and set goals and expectations for the relationship, this can help you stay on the same page and work towards the same goal.
One way to help you through this is to remind yourself that the distance is temporary, and that it will eventually come to an end. Whether you’re waiting for a deployment to end, or saving up money to move closer to your partner, the distance will not last forever.
Another way to help is to remind yourself of the benefits of a long-distance relationship. For example, it can teach you how to communicate effectively, how to trust one another and how to appreciate the time you have together.
