Distance does not make love hard

Distance does not make love hard. 

Distance does not fade loyalty into translucence. It does not mist the air you breathe with mistrust. It does not morph compassion into boredom.

Distance does not ruin a good thing. It has no evil plot. It does not pull at the pieces and stand aside to watch the crumble. Distance does not make Jenga out of your love.

Distance does not make love hard. 

Loving someone so deeply, so rawly, and without fail makes distance hard. 

Loving someone and learning to support them without physical presence makes distance hard.

Loving someone and laying alone at night, on holidays, on the good days, and on the bad makes distance hard.

A colossal sized love makes distance hard. 

A colossal sized love makes distance worth it. 

But distance does not make love hard. 

Distance makes love beautiful. It reminds love to be wildly present in absence. It allows room for love to be creative, to be strong, to be tremendous, and overpowering. It silences small spaces and asks you to be alone – allowing for independence to balance dependence. It demands discipline, sacrifice, and courage.

Distance makes the next laugh a little richer, the next kiss a little longer, and stores the next embrace for eternal safekeeping. It emphasizes humility, enriches us with grace, and prompts us to be grateful in the smallest of moments.

And so I say:

A colossal sized love makes distance hard. 

A colossal sized love makes distance worth it. 

But distance does not make love hard. 

Spread the word.
