Friend Moving Away - October 23rd 2013, 08:17 PM

So, my first real friend and someone I consider my best friend is moving away.

Like, further away than she already is.

I know we will still text and stuff and call and we can get together at my place sometimes, but it won't be the daily at-school thing anymore.

I can be sociable, but I'm going to be honest-- there aren't that many people I want to talk to daily and that I would be fine with having a close friendship with. There aren't many people who share interests with me in my town or at my school, and that I believe I can really trust and talk to and stuff. I'm starting to meet people, but I don't know how interested they would be too.

Well, my one true friend is moving away, and I really don't know what to do right now.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Maddi. I'm really sorry to hear about the situation you are in and I have been in many similar situations as you. It comes along with a empty and lost feeling, and you feel upset, but you understand why she's moving at the same time. I guess it's a very hard feeling to get a grasp on and fully understand.

I wish I had alot of advice to give you, but there isn't much to say that you don't already know. As you said, you will be able to text her and call her, and use social media to connect with her, but yes, you will not be able to see her everyday. This will be a change, but I want you to know that your friendship can continue to grow and develop even though she's moving away. I'm at college (4 hours away) from 5 of my best friends - and while it sucks and I haven't seen them in over 3 months, I still talk to them everyday. So her moving isn't the end of the world - who knows, maybe this will actually grow your friendship into a stronger one?

On another note, I am glad you are deciding to talk to other people. I'm not saying you need to be friends with everyone, but I think connecting and communicating with a few people (and hopefully starting a friendship with them) will certainly be good for you (especially since your friend is moving). Keep your heart open, and keep exploring the unknown (ie: new people).

Stay strong, and keep your head up!


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...
