…The time spent apart makes you appreciate the days spent together. It is a test of faith and it makes each one stronger. And probably the greatest realization in a love separated by such a distance is that at times you’ll have to think and say to yourself that if it was for nothing then you might have easily dropped it, but you didn’t cause you can see a future with him. You feel the sadness but you have to keep yourself sane, and both of you have to be strong. So in a way you learn independence. In the end you still hope to have him by your side but you know you are a strong woman who can handle life on your own.
