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

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
