Sometimes while waiting we are learning the art of patience, seeing things in different ways, but also learning that time waits for noone, and while we wait, we also gift others that very same thing we lose…the gift of time.
It advances when we least expect it and it almost stops when we need it most in order to achieve certain goals. Especially when at a distance, as in an ldr. Our daily recipe for love relies on a constant reassurance of our affection, time and patience. When things go wrong on one side of the equation, they tip the balance completely in an unfavorable way for our S/O.
Many times leaving them in an unpredictable position as i call it, “walking on eggshells” and wondering if they’ll get thru this series of events and recover their status as confidant, as bestfriend or as i also call it “sab kuch” which means everything.
I’ve read over and over similar quotes about patience being a virtue, but let’s be honest with ourselves. Not everyone can wait patiently when loves strikes us leaving us intoxicated under its effects. Effects such as loss of time notion, or sporadically growing feelings and the constant agony of being away from the object of our affection. Our minds travel in seconds staging what things we’ll do and how we want them to be, unfortunately that’s our heart’s desire yet our current state says or shows a different story.
Relationships thrive on affection, communication, and understanding but we sometimes don’t know how to set each of those factors in the right order. The hour glass is used to measure an amount of time which in some movie scenes was a dangerous sign of a race against time to make a desperate self sacrificing choice, or having one made for us indirectly. Somehow the way I see it… our hearts are shaped in the same way, and althou we love our S/O a test of time always shows up and breaks our emotional balance to only shift it in order to prove we are worthy of that desperate feeling that grows within us to love and be loved.
Love is greatly affected by time, in can grow out of nothing at all, from a simple crush to a one-sided love story and sadly die slowly, having a cause of death called negligence. LDR’S are the biggest and greatest test of time, not everyone is built for one, but those who dare to venture into that realm need to be constantly innovating and keeping up with every step taken since it’s so easy to fall into the darkness i call routine. And those are deadly to any type of relationship. It can destroy weeks- months or years of efforts while sending them crumbling down like a sand castle built without a wall to protect it.
Time is the very source it thrives upon but fades away without the efforts. Remember to always take out time to learn a bit more about your S/O, surprise them and let them know how important and special they are to us. It’s vital in order to have a healthy relationship survive, just as the continuous beating of our heart is to live. “Take time out in order to invest it on your Significant Other”
Stay blessed Always 💌
