Friend Wants to Move - September 8th 2013, 04:47 PM

My best friend wants to move due to her not liking her family, so she'd be moving in with either her Aunt and Uncle or her Grandma. Both of which are far away. I really enjoy them as a friend, and long distance just doesn't work well for me. Is there anything I can do? I really worry about them and their depression and don't want to see them going away, unable to care for them.

Well, has your best friend told you when she'll be moving? If she hasn't moved yet, you just need to make the best out of the days that she's still there before she goes. When she moves out, find a way to keep in touch like exchange phone numbers, communicate through social media, write letters to one another, e-mail, etc. However, as far as trying to get her to stay, that might be tough. I suggest that you have a talk with her about it and tell her how you feel about her moving away. If you can't get her to stay, then just take what I said earlier on in this post into consideration. Best of luck to you.

I agree with Mark.

You know, sometimes we don't have control over somethings. When we don't have control over things, please note that you still have control over how you respond to those things/events. So while you may not like your friend moving, it actually is probably best for her to do so. When/if they move away, as Mark said, try to keep in contact with her. Send them letters, or funny pictures via mail or email. Use Facebook, Twitter, or other social media outlets to stay connected with them. Text or call them once in awhile. Now adays, there are so many things you can do to stay in touch! Her moving away doesn't mean you will lose the friendship. I have actually even seen friendships strengthen by distance.

Keep your head up, and support her with any decision she makes.


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
