Long Distance Relationship – The First Day

Being in a long-distance relationship is not easy.  We all know that.  But through my experience of Hubby coming and going, I must say that the first day is always THE worst.

Here are the 7 stages of emotions you might go through in the First Day.

The First Day

1. Sadness

The uncontrollable urge to cry.  Buckets.

2. Denial

Nope.  He’s not really gone.  He’ll be back tonight, right?

3. Guilt

I wish I had spent more time with him before he left.   Why didn’t I make him his favorite meal, one last time?

4.  Anger

Why can’t we just have a normal marriage?  I mean, is sleeping in the same bed every night TOO much to ask for?

5.  Loneliness

This is where I start drinking.  Buckets.

6. Upturn

OK, maybe its not so bad.  I mean, I now get the “space” I craved so much.

7.  Acceptance

You know what?  I got this.  Now only 199 days to go.  Give or take a few days.

Have you experienced these series of emotions on the first day?  Leave a comment below and let me know what I should add to this list!
