Long distance relationships represent a big challenge for any couple. Even though the love for our partner is strong in most cases and it may seem enough for us, at the beginning of a long distance relationship, we are still demotivated and sad, almost ready to give up sometimes. Therefore, we need something to gives us hope, to boost us when we are down, we need to believe that it is all going to be fine and a great future awaits us, as a couple.
When you find yourself in such moments of sadness and hopelessness, we need some reassures from your partner, you need to know that he / she still cares for you and loves you no matter how big the distance is. However, we cannot request our partner this type of reassurance very often, so we need to boost ourselves with what we already know. Long distance relationship quotes are also very useful when we experience such moments.
These long distance relationship quotes can inspire you, make you ponder about your relationship more, and even decide if it is the best thing for you, because not all long distance relationships are worth continuing and fighting for. Sometimes we need to put ourselves first and objectively (as much as we can) analyze our current situation, because sometimes one of us may not be trying as hard as the other, or he / she may not want to remain in this type of relationship.
We have gathered some long distance relationship quotes that may inspire you in doing what is best for you:
For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. – John Burroughs
John Burroughs points out something that you are already familiar with – in order to obtain something you really want or to keep something you have you need to work for it. People worth having do not usually come easy and neither great things. Patience is an important quality in a distance relationship, and it will be tested to its limits. Love and self-sacrifice are also extremely important in every relationship, but, most of all, in these types of relationships.
The scariest thing about distance is you don’t know if they’ll miss you or forget about you. — Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great. – Roger de Bussy-Rabutin
As we have already mentioned and as stated in both of the long distance relationship quotes above, the test of distance and of time spent apart is truly the hardest test of all. If you can survive that, you can probably survive anything together. If it really that great love we all search for, it will pass the distance test and will become even more strengthened.
