Distance can make a lot of things look the same. It distorts reality in a way that makes things unclear. We become unsure.
Are they wrestling or hugging?
Siblings or lovers?
Certain of who they are or scared to death of who they might be?
Careful with money or secretive with it?
I find it difficult to judge things from a distance. Too many times I’ve been deceived by the space between me and the source of my thoughts. Too many times I’ve been wrong.
Distance can make things look the same because it takes away our certainty. It’s why a long-distance relationship is so hard to keep up. It takes away each partner’s certainty of the other one’s faithfulness.
That’s the difference distance makes—a difference of certainty.
Have you ever been deceived by distance?
