I spent the holiday with my beloved boyfriend of 5 ½ years. We just watched movies all day and had a little sleepover.
Unfortunately, he’s moving to California to start his career. Today’s the last day I
have had with him… Good-byes are so hard.
5 ½ years and this was our first Christmas together. 5 ½ years and we still haven’t shared a New Years kiss. 5 ½ years and he’s been my best friend through everything. Life has taken him to Texas, Florida, and now California - away from me - and that’s why we don’t have too many moments together. Even after our first year being together, his family moved to Florida, but he went to college in Louisiana an hour away from me.
But I believe that through all the distance we have been through, it has prepared us for this obstacle in our relationship. Exactly a 2,000.5 mile-long obstacle. Yes, our relationship has been blessed in the right time - a time where FaceTime, texting, and calling exist in our everyday lives - because if it weren’t for these types of communication, our relationship wouldn’t exist. I wouldn’t have found my best friend, my true love in this world. A gentleman capable of love, patience, and kindness.
I just wanted to share something personal and from the heart with you guys. Hopefully, it’ll give some of y’all hope.
