I recently read an article on Facebook called “The Truth About Meeting Someone at the Wrong Time.” (It was written by Heidi Priebe.) I encourage you all to go read it. It was such a good read and very insightful.
What really stood out in this article to me was that it mentioned meeting the person of our dreams a month before they go study abroad. I’ve mentioned before that my fiance is out of state at school. I met him 6 months before he left, and I admit it was very hard to know he’d be leaving. Before he left we got engaged. I’ve always heard how long distance relationships don’t work. I was worried when it came to mine, but we were always able to work through concerns.
In the article it does say, “the people we meet at the wrong time are actually the wrong people.” Well I do believe that, I don’t believe it is the same with my relationship. Let me tell you why. My fiance and I worked really hard to keep thing going. I would go to visit once or twice a month, and during that time we did talk about a lot, but we also just enjoyed each others company.
The author talked about what it was like to be with the right person. She said,” when you are with the right person time falls away.” I never had to worry about fitting my fiance in. We weren’t in the same state, but we texted all day and at least once a week talked on FaceTime or the phone. It didn’t matter what we were doing. I know I’ve done homework while on FaceTime with him. We never held each other back from anything either. Talking from personal experience, it is hard to keep a long distance relationship together, but knowing that this is the person for you helps and it becomes a habit to call once a week or text “goodnight” every night. They become part of the “busy schedule” mentioned in the article.
In closing Heidi Priebe says,”Because when someone is right for us, we make the time to let them into our lives. And that kind of timing is always right.” As I said earlier I have made that time for my fiance and he makes the time for me. It’s really not a hard thing to do. You would think flying out of state would be hard to plan and make the timing for. It really isn’t. I would fly out Friday night and come home Sunday night. Yes, it wasn’t a lot of time but it we knew we’d see each other again. Here’s something for all you reading to remember, be timeless!
