The New Year has started and whether you are looking to start afresh with a new diet or a new relationship perhaps, keep in the back of your mind that both require a lot of hard work on all levels!
It can certainly put a strain on the relationship and in my case has unfortunately resulted in family law solicitors being used in the case of my divorce.
This does not mean to say that all long distance relationships have to suffer! Knowing boundaries and keeping the lines of communication open are the sure fire way to relationship success. Skype is a great resource that can be used for quick instant messages or even video chats. For Liv and I, Skype is a great reassurance for keeping in contact with my parents, who sadly do not live in the UK.
In the case of relationships where partners are together a lot of the time, some may wish that partners do venture away for work every so often in order to retain some peace and quiet! One great thing about long distance relationships is the fact you have control of the TV remote – such a trivial thing, which is certainly hard to give up. The freedom also allows you to complete tasks as an individual and enables you to spend time with your friends without a sprinkle of added earache!
Relationships take time to nurture and patience to maintain, it is a case of give and take. Just remember communication is key… even if it does mean listening to what your partner ate for lunch that day!
