Things NOT To Say To Someone In A LDR

Brooke & Jim Memphis

Being in a long distance relationship sucks.

There are two shining lights at the end of the tunnel during the whole experience

1. Knowing it is only temporary.

2. Having friends and family that step up and are extremely supportive.

However, Sometimes the trying to help or say the right thing, doesn’t help. Sometimes the words of support and encouragement are more hurtful and frustrating than helpful.

Yes it’s tough.

Yes we make it work.

Yes we are lucky to get to see each other almost every weekend.

But sometimes a simple “I’m sorry. It sucks you guys are going through this.” will do the trick.

This morning Mike said something during the show that set off something that I have been thinking about for a long time. The things I wish people wouldn’t say to me during our time apart.
