Changes Throughout my Relationship

I have only been in one relationship in my life and I have been with the same girl for over three years now. I have not had to change any significant things about myself to make it work. She loves me for who I am and thatís one of the things that is making it last for so long. She is a senior in high school and as you might guess, I am a freshman in college. That has been (and still is) pretty difficult to adjust to being over two hours away at any given moment. Making these adjustments is probably the biggest thing I have changed. Watching out for any situations that might appear wrong if taken out of context, and making sure to still make her feel like she is worth staying with, even if it is just a simple phone call or a text telling her why she is still worth it, no matter how far away I am has been something I have been trying to keep up with. It has been a bit tough to be so far away from her and not being able to take her out and do sweet things in person. Finding time to call and talk has been a challenge at times when I have class long after she gets out of school, when I have homework and she has hers as well as work. I have also learned to appreciate art through being with Whitney because she is very into art. Through being with her, I have seen the kind of dedication it takes to be an artist. The constant changing, tweaking and critiquing of her work, trying to make it perfect to get into college is something thatís taken some getting used to. I always think it is great work but she always finds something to change so even though I still say it is great, I learned to stand by while she perfects it in her eyes. Through being with Whitney, I have gained respect for artists and learned many different aspects of the art world.
