When talking about long-distance relationships, don’t expect the doom mongers to have anything supportive or positive to say on the subject. There is a common consensus of opinion–the kind of opinion which belongs to those entirely unable to think outside their tiny little bubbles of existence–that LDRs just don’t work. Well, I’m here to tell you that the doom monger predictions aren’t necessarily the case.
As with anything in life, it’s sometimes a little too easy to focus exclusively upon the negatives of a situation. This is especially the case when everyone around you is trying to push you into that train of thought. But often, the way to defeat this way of thinking is to turn it on its head–turn a negative into a positive, so to speak.
