I read a very nice piece on “distance” yesterday written by @akshaykapoooor on how distance treats us and teaches us so many things.
The immediate thought that came to my head was how time is a healer & distance can be too. How time & distance both walk hand in hand. And just like that back in school we were taught time & distance stays together and are dependent on each other.
Distance not only teaches us patience but also how to be emotionally, financially & physically independent. It teaches us whom to trust & whom not to. It also teaches us how to say NO to things we are not comfortable with or don’t want to do. Also teaches us how to say YES to things & to people in our life. Everything is an experience and is counted as a lesson in life.
Most importantly what distance teaches us is that with time, who is important in your life & who is not. Who leaves you and who stays with you. I’ve seen relationships break because of distance & they blame time - “time was bad for us”. I’ve also seen relationships rise in my life and with much love.
Distance is a test & time is the result.
Any relationship that can sustain distance & a bad time together is for forever & the strongest in life.
I might be 2000 miles far,
Yet a call away.
We might be physically apart,
Yet we are emotionally together.
Call me if you need me,
And I promise to take the next flight home.
Time will heal & Time will mend,
Time will bring us together once again.
Relationships are never about I or YOU. That’s selfish. It is always about WE & US. I might not be a relationship expert nor do I intend to be one. But I’ve been in phases where distance tested me. And I survived.
Believe in time.
And not in distance.
It’s just a number.
