Us against the world attitude
Its important to have an attitude that “You and I” is the most important thing.
The attitude that we are going to be on the same page against any obstacle as a couple almost like a team is so important when it comes to long-distance relationships.
And this is something the two of you have to develop together. It’s not going to work out if this is a one sided thought. So you need to properly communicate about things like these.
So if you are sure that both of you are on the same page with this, don’t really care about what every one else have to say.
All of this is relevant only if at the end of the day, there is something positive coming out of the relationship. It could either be that you both get to live together after few years or some kind of experience that you get to have together that could leave a lasting memory. Anything positive to look forward to.
The fact is long-distance relationships can be really hard. But if you have that positive conclusion in mind then it is certainly worth fighting for and do everything possible to make sure that the two of you stay strong in the relationship.
