Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn’t make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.
Every people want to have their own time to do something that they love, to get their privacy, to just feel free for a while. I think either it’s friendship or love relationship, if it’s built by trust, no matter how far you are each other, time won’t separate you. What people want is to be respected & appreciated. Sometimes it’s not easy but learning is one part of growing :). Good luck~
