We all know that when it comes to real life, that Hollywood movies are fun to watch, but that they aren’t really realistic especially when it comes to long-distance relationships. I know from experience. So I wanted to shed some light on the truths behind these lies.
Why You Shouldn’t Get Discouraged By Hollywood’s Lies about Long-Distance Relationships
If you don’t know my story, I’ll share a little about that here. My husband, Johan, and I were in a long-distance relationship for 5.5 years, while we were still dating.I met him when studying abroad in Australia.
…And long story short, we thrived in and out of our long-distance relationship. Of course there were ups and downs. We made it work. That’s the important thing. I want to encourage you to ignore the lies about long-distance relationships that the world tries throwing at you, because more than anything it’s just going to discourage you.
What you need to do instead, is listen to those who have gone before you. I’m here to guide you, hold your hand, and chat with you over a chai latte in a coffee shop to tell you it’s normal and that you don’t have to listen to the lies. I totally care about you and your relationship.
