Ready to Make THE Move

6 years ago

We are finally doing it—we are finally talking about moving closer to each other. We are finally making the hypothetical, real

My long-distance boyfriend and I are embarking on the next phase of our journey. We’ve done long distance for a very long time and we are over it. We are over the fact that we have to miss key events in each other’s lives. We are over the fact that we can’t sit and watch a basketball game together. We are over the fact that we can only see each other once every four weeks. 

Our frustration with our current situation was exacerbated this past weekend when we were able to spend significant time together. We had so much fun together and couldn’t understand why we weren’t able to be together all the time. People move everyday—whatever we have or do in our respective cities, we can find equivalents to in another city. 
So we are over it—we are going to make a change. That change may not be tomorrow, but it will also not be a year from now. We are now doing the things necessary to make that change sooner rather than later. 

“Goodbye”Goodbye to lonelinessI am alone no more.Goodbye to confusion My curiosity will explore. Goodbye to sadnessI have joy in my life.Goodbye to heartacheI have no more strife.Goodbye to the coldRefuge I have sought.Goodbye to the hateLove has been bought.Goodbye to the angerThere is peace within.Goodbye to foreverI have you till the end.

We have finally come to the point where we are willing to sacrifice our current situations in order to make room for a better situation with each other. We always wanted to make the leap, but were never mentally ready to do so...we are finally there!
