Do you sometimes find yourself doubting the strength of your love and bond with your SO? I’m going to be honest…I do at times. No matter how much Mr re-assures me that we’re on track and in good standing, I can’t help but think sometimes that our lond didtance may be a detriment to our success. I chose to take a job overseas instead of be up under him night and day. Sometimes I feel like I miss so much. At any moment I could leave this 6 figure job and go home to be with him, and crazy enough unemployed as he is, he supports it, but it would kill me to have us both unemployed trying to finish school. Mr tends to remind me that this is a small sacrifice compared to the long term gain. Its hard this thing called LOVE and even harder Long Distance….
The upside to this post is that I’ll be stepping off a plane into his arms hopefully within the next 72hrs (travel form Iraq is hard and a long process)

It’s rough, and there’s no way around that. 🙁
One thing to keep in mind: we (or at least I) always, always, always found it hardest right before we saw each other. I think the anxiety and whatever just built up and we were so ready to see each other that our emotions were overwhelming in general, if that makes sense. We were just sooooo ready to see each other that we started to get pissy that it wasn’t time quite yet! Or a ‘darkest before dawn’ mentality, if you will.
I’m sorry – but you’ll be together soon, and you CAN get through this time, and you WILL be together in the end!
Do you have a timeline for when you’ll be together for good? Not necessarily marriage, just when the distance will end?

@ddw: we’re looking at 2 more years and then I’m done for good, unless I get a location where he can come and visit. And I do find it soo hard right before I go on vacation to see him….I think I drive the both of us nuts the few weeks b4 I get on the plane. I hope I’ve gotten better but we’ll see this time around. I have more faith in us making it then not.
