One of the worst things in Virtual Relationship
A virtual relationship can awesome but it can also be very painful when your partner is sick. It’s hard because there’s so little you can do for them. It’s important to be there for your partner when they’re sick in real life, but unfortunately that’s just not possible in here. It’s painful and hurts not to be able to help especially when it often means extended absences. There’s no answer and no solution that I know to this, other than just be patient, keep them in your prayers and love them more when they’re back. It’s just part of the cross we bear in a virtual world.
The only consolation I can give is that it will probably make you closer and stronger. I know it’s hard. A friend says that love is, or requires suffering. I don’t know about that, but I do know that relationships are built on shared emotions and this type of negative emotions may be extremely powerful in that. Sometimes I also think that the negative times are more real than the passion. Yes my heart aches wanting to be there for a partner when I know they’re suffering but without the rain, would we really appreciate the sunshine?
