my friend.. - July 24th 2009, 02:02 PM

Soo.. Today is the day that my best friend moves... I know this is like a childish thing to be upset over.. not a 19 year old.. But anyways, she moves to a city 3-4 hour drive from me.. also, she hasn't even made and steps to hanging out with me before she leaves..

Hey.
Im sorry you friend is moving. Maybe she doesn't want to see you before because it's emotional and she doesn't want to upset you? It's a hard time for both of you. Don't think you are too old to feel this, you can't grow out of your emotions?! It's good that you are able to recognise how you feel and the best thing to do is talk about it.
With technology it is so easy to keep in touch with people - I know it's not the same but true friendship will last despite where you live!
I hope you two stay in touch

Hi Brittany,

You can never be too old to feel sad when a friend moves away. Don't put yourself down about how you are feeling right now, because it is completely fine and normal. Three or four hours away is quite far, but it's not impossible to see her. You can still keep in touch. Just because your friend is moving doesn't mean she's gone from your life.

It could be that your friend is really busy with the move and that is why she hasn't been able to hang out. I know that when my family moved, it was really difficult for me to see my friends because I was just so busy with packing and getting everything ready.

Maybe you could talk to your friend and offer to see her off, or see if she wants to hang out and get a coffee or a drink with you before she goes. Try contacting her instead of waiting for her to contact you. Also, if you haven't already, exchange emails and phone numbers and put in an effort to keep up the contact with each other as much as you can.

Take care.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

The thing that bugs me the most is that she had time to spend with my ex boyfriend..

Also, shes leaving for the Military on August 16th..
