Anonymous asked: How do you deal with long distance relationship, if you only see that person every once in a while in a year? I mean skyping and calling is another way to stay in contact, but is it healthy?
I totally sympathize with you. Long distance relationships can be the hardest things to deal with. In my opinion, most don’t work out. However if you are truly dedicated to each other, you can make it work. In answer to your first question, how do you deal with it, you try to make it work and if it does not, then you decide for yourself if this is what you should be doing. You cannot control something, you can only control how you react to it. In answer to your second question, if it is healthy, it is only healthy if it does not impede with your mental or physical wellbeing. Some determiners of an “unhealthy” relationship
❏ You feel insecure and weak around each other.
❏ You suffer from low self-esteem as a result of what happens between you.
❏ You are dishonest with each other.
❏ You spend more time feeling hurt than feeling good about how you treat each other.
❏ You find yourself complaining to others about your relationship. ❏ You are unable to talk about your feelings or problems with your mate, much
less solve them.
❏ You are unable to resolve your differences together.
❏ You become unenthusiastic about life because of what goes on between you.
❏ Your trust is irrevocably broken.
❏ Seemingly small things erode your relationship, like trickling water that wears away at a rock over time.
❏ Priorities other than each other constantly present themselves.
❏ What goes on between you interferes with other aspects of your life.
