It can be easy for us to doubt ourselves, but as women, this doubt seems to be on overload with the amount of pressure we have to act, feel, behave, and look a certain way. Yes, men feel pressure as well, but the pressure we feel is just different, not worse.
“It could all be so simple. But you’d rather make it hard. Loving you is like a battle and we both end up with scars. Tell me who I have to be to get some reciprocity? No one loves you more than me and no one ever will.
Is this just a silly game that forces you to act this way?

Ta’lor did it again! Her ability to write candid and relatable posts has made her a College Mate Contest winner for the second consecutive time. This ties her with Shandean Williams-Reid, the only other contestant to win twice in a row.
Ta’lor’s winning submission gave tips on how to maintain a happy long distance relationship. This is a scenario that many of us can relate to when transitioning from high school into college; and then again, from college into the real working world.
Even so, Ta’lor admits she didn’t expect the kind of support she received from readers. She says:
There was one comment on my article that stood out to me. It said, “sharing of social media login info – this is soo damn right; I’m in total agreement with you.”

It breaks my heart that I cannot make you feel better…that I cannot take away the pain, hurt, and anger.
The roller-coaster of emotions has embedded our hearts, for I have adopted your pain.
To my dearest child,
I could not see you smile, hear you laugh, or hold you in my arms, but I loved you in the womb.
You came into this world a surprise to mommy, but it was a beautiful surprise….
The first time I held you, we cried together as you immediately latched to my breast.
Seeing you smile, makes me smile.
Hearing you laugh, makes me laugh.
From your first words to your first steps, I fall more-and-more in love with you.
You are the greatest Mother’s Day gift! I will love you forever, entirely.
Becoming a mom was and is the best part of my life. Is it tough? Yes! Do I get frustrated? Yes! Would I have it any other way? Not for anyone or anything in this world.

Maintaining a LRD can be difficult and college life does not make that any easier. Learning ways to keep the spark when you are miles away from each other is possible, despite the odds.
Please view the original post to support me and learn ways to maintain your relationship, long distance.
I love and appreciate all of you fellow bloggers and readers; hopefully you will provide me with your feedback on the original post! Looking forward to talking to you about your LDRs.
Relationships are tough; adding distance to the mix doesn’t make them any easier. It’s hard enough to trust the partner you live with. Imagine trusting the one who lives a world away.
Because of this, some may say that long distance relationships don’t work. But the truth is, all relationships take effort. Some just take a little more than others.
Are you dating someone who is already in college? Is your significant other not going to college, but you are? Are you and your high school sweetheart going to different colleges?
If so, here are four ways to maintain a happy relationship while you’re apart.
Communication is Key
It’s not always easy to keep up with everything that goes on in each other’s lives, but making the time to talk without distraction is an important part of making it work.
This doesn’t have to mean talking on the phone multiple times…

“If you say you love me,
and you won’t let me go,
If we all could start living by these words, we would see more unity in this world.
You wake me up with a kiss when I miss my alarm.
You run me a bath when I am feeling drained after work.
You give the best hugs.
You are there for me when I am right or wrong.
“When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
When the tears come streaming down your face
