Why the Hell Not?

Why?

People never get tired asking me this one-word question whenever I tell them I am in a long distance relationship for quite a long time now. They do not think that I also ask myself this question every day.

When I wake up…

When I look at my reflection in the mirror…

When I am taking a shower…

When I take my first bite in the morning…

When I am on the train…

When I listen to music…

When see couples laughing while walking, hand in hand…

When I see old couples…

When I stare at his picture on my computer at work…

When I see his name appear on my emails…

When I take a short break at work…

When I am waiting for him to take my call…

When I am waiting for the bus on the way home…

When I am preparing to go to bed…

When I send him a message before that…

When I am dreaming in my sleep…

When I wake up…

Yes.

I tell you. I ask myself that question a lot.

Why?

Why am I in this kind of relationship? What is in it for me?

Why am I waiting for him?

Why do I love him when I do not see him every day?

Why do I think I know him full enough when we are rarely together?

Why do I always say ‘yes’ when he asks me if I want to spend the rest of my life with him?

Why do I love him?

Why?

It may be very tiring to answer these questions especially when people do not really understand what you are saying; but it is more tiring when people have their own opinions about your situation and they are so hung up on what they believe in, so they do not actually listen to what you are trying to explain to them.

Well, for me… I think that I do not really have to explain myself to people.

I do not have to tell them why I am very patient or why I am putting myself in a difficult kind of relationship.

I do not have to tell them how much I trust and love him.

I do not have to tell them every time, even though I really want to because I know that it would be the greatest story ever told.

And so,

I tell them…

Why the hell not?
