Do you know how fast a thirty five minute break soars by you when you're trying to soak up every minute as long as you can? It feels like ten minutes. The ten minute break feels like three minutes. It's crazy. I know, time goes by quickly when you're enjoying yourself but come on! I absolutely had no doubts in my mind that this temporary distance was going to be hard to deal with. I didn't try to make myself feel better about him staying in Texas and me being in California with any silly disillusions. I didn't lie or sugarcoat anything to myself. I knew it was going to suck but for several personal reasons, it's something I needed to do.
I miss him. I won't lie. I won't try to make myself seem like some calm, cool, collected chick and act like it's a little iffy but mostly all good. I'd by lying because I'm going a little crazy with missing him right now. I love and adore that silly boy. I gave him pieces of myself without even realizing that's what I was doing. That says worlds about him. That I care, love, adore and trust him that much, to let my guard down so much with him. It's not something I do easily or often.
I worry that our relationship isn't going to withstand this distance for the amount of time I need. I worry that it's going to ruin us. I wonder that we'll grow apart. That we'll become too independent without the other around and no longer feel much need for the other. I worry about a hundred other little things that could tear us apart to the point that I wouldn't want to be with him any longer or that he wouldn't want to be with me any longer. Oddly, I think a big concern for a lot of people in this situation would be worries of their significant other cheating. I haven't considered that once. I honestly believe that he wouldn't cheat on me and I don't even worry the slightest bit about it. I'm too busy worrying over a hundred other things that seem far more likely to happen.
Then I think about some of the things I've done that have seriously caused shit between us in the past. I think about things I've done that should have probably ended us but we worked through them. We've gotten through some hard issues together and made things work. Albeit, not always easily but we've gotten through. I've fucked up once horribly bad and we're still together. I'm not even sure I would have kept me after that instant but he did. No, I've never cheated on him so don't think that and asking is going to be useless. I'm taking it to my grave and he is the only other person ever going to know what happened. I hope anyway, lol. My point is, we've made it through some hard things already. I find a sort of comfort in that. We got through that crap, so this distance crap isn't much compared to some other stuff.
Aside from the fact that we've done long distance before and obviously made it through. It's just harder this time around because now we've been together longer and we're both used to having the other there every day or almost every day.
Throw in my emotional issues and the issues in my head and it's definitely a challenge. I just hope it's a challenge we kick ass succeeding in. I think we will make it okay. It will just be hard and we'll hit some speed bumps on the way and send each other reeling a time or two, lol.
I think that does it for today. I'm too tired to write more even though I have a funny story I was wanting to share. Maybe tomorrow. ;)
WW is coming up in a couple days. Don't forget to come play with us. ;) I'm up for the questions this week and I've already got them done up and ready to post. I *think* I have to work Tuesday night and it'll be late when I get in if I do work so I know I won't want to mess with it then. So they'll auto-post Tuesday night/Wednesday morning (depending on how you want to say it) at midnight Central time. Look at me go, thinking ahead for something! Lol.
Happy Monday Y'all! =)
