Long Distance Relationships

Long distance relationships will only succeed if both parties want to be there and have an equal accord of commitment and understanding. I am a firm believer in making long distance relationships work as I've done so before and continue to do. As much as it can be the biggest pain in the neck it's also created strong bonds I wouldn't have otherwise.

The best place to start when 'defining' a LDR is accepting that your relationship is as valid as any. Whether you knew someone and they moved away or you met via the internet, the physicality of a relationship is such a minor detail and others should never make you feel uncomfortable about it lacking. I know I've personally felt this way before but now I couldn't care less what others think, love is love baby.

Don't forget to Pin on Pinterest and share on Facebook!

Toxic relationships, long distance or not, are filled with paranoia, suspicion, doubt, skepticism, invasive questioning etc. If you or your other half is showing any if these signs it's probably wise you reevaluate where you both stand and either clean up your act or possibly remove the relationship. Long distance can drive a person to be overly needy and attached but this will only happen if a person is insecure so always be on the same page as each other and be clear about where you're at emotionally and mentally.

That leads us easily to communication. There is no such thing as a barrier anymore when it comes to communication as there are far too many ways to get your message across candid and clear. Different relationships take many different levels of communication and it's up to you to decide what works best for you.
If it is romantic and quite serious I'd say easily everyday make contact, this won't be hard to do because if you're extremely fond of each other you'll always find the time to touch base.
If it's a friendship keep it light and consistent reminding them that you think of them often.
Like I said before, there are no excuses anymore to lack of communication so don't be slack or ghost your girl.
I deeply recommend having a conversation with each other about the level of communication that you need and want. Meeting in the middle is wise as some can go for weeks, others only a day without.

Transparency very much like communication is key to keeping your LDR alive and well. It's effortless to to be vague and ambiguous but your relationship with that kind of attitude is going to come to an end very quickly. Keep yourself open and available, being honest, upfront and transparent are needed traits in any relationship especially long distance ones.

All in all, if you really dig someone you'll make time and move your energy towards them effortlessly. Some days will always be easier than others but that's how the delicious relationship cookie crumbles. If you're questioning having a LDR or not I say go for it. I moved across the country away from my best friend almost 6 years ago and no one has ever come close to my relationship with her and I'm also happily inlove with someone who lives on the other side of the globe.

Anything is possible my people, your imagination is the only limit there is and will ever be. Love knows no boundaries.

Love, Delilah

Dealing With Online Criticism: Brushing It Off & Moving Forwards

My first personal run-in with online criticism occurred this week in a somewhat odd and unexpected fashion but unexpected is to be expected when it comes to me as I'm just a wild child and would rather not walk in a straight line. I've never been one to dish out hate online as (and correct me if I'm wrong) I feel it just clashes with The Resplendent Lioness brand I'm trying to build but at the same time I've never really received it either. Actually I take that back, I did feel personally attacked a handful of times when I had my Taylor Swift fan account back in 2014 whenever someone openly claimed that they didn't like her. 14 year old me was scared but down to fight when it came to being a Swiftie.
It was a roller-coaster of emotions the first 10 minutes after reading someones unnecessary and uneducated opinion on my blog in an online community help page but once I stepped off the ride and allowed my feet to hit solid ground again the hills didn't seem a…

Creating Content: The Other Side Of Productivity & Inspiration

I haven't felt uber inspired to produce this weeks blog to be completely honest as I haven't been in a super great frame of mind. My thoughts have been scatty and my emotions have been strewn across my bedroom floor like dirty clothes I need to put in the wash but simply can't be bothered to. These feelings are partially to do with me wanting my content to be perfect and placing immense amounts of pressure on myself that would result in pooping rainbows or growing a second head. But just like every other week, Thursday rolls around and I have nothing, no inspiration or motivation to sit down and pour the next 12 hours into writing which is a draining standard I've gotten a little too used to.
Even when I don't have a hard hitting subject to cover or questions to raise I still wish to keep my steady rhythm of posting every Thursday because even though creating new content can drive me up the wall it still very much keeps me sane and it would feel like a part of me …

Living In Fear: Goodbye To Old Trauma & Hello To Your Genuine Truth

We are blessed to be alive in a day and age where technology is at an all-time high, international solo travel is more than possible and safer than ever, information is abundant and overflowing from every open stream of consciousness but we still live so much of our lives in fear. There is nothing wrong with fear like there is nothing wrong with anything that ever was, but living in survival mode for your whole life is not thriving like you and me were born to. Fear is something all humans feel, you can't not as it's kind of ingrained into our make-up after long lines of ancestral trauma and because we're animals with survival instincts. But times have changed and you don't need to shelter yourself in a blanket of fear anymore because we are at a point in evolution where staying 'safe' is far more dangerous than putting yourself out on the line.
A little over a month ago I fell apart and in that process I dropped and shattered the hard protective coating I enc…

Nothing Turns Me On Like Good Aesthetics Do: My Favourites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So often the little things go unseen and overlooked but without these forgotten tiny miracles the world would be pretty damn lackluster. I personally seek the little precious moments that you could melt into and hold onto forever, they keep me optimistic and make me feel infinite in a dimension that feels a little too physically restrictive for my liking. How someone notices, views, feels these moments speaks volumes when it comes to knowing how in tune or out of touch they are with source energy. Right now I want to bring your attention back to the little things so you can stay more aware and open to them throughout your day. It is a constant reminder to look up and watch the clouds when you've kept your eyes on the ground for so long but it is worth it because missing out on such magic would be the deepest of tragedies.

Here is a list of some of my favourite little things using your very basic but priceless five senses smell, sound, sight, touch an…
