Question How do I tell my friends I'm leaving? - January 11th 2011, 05:06 PM

I might be moving to Australia next year, and I don't know how to tell my friends
And the thing is, I sort of want to go even though its scary moving to the other side of the world, and I don't know how to tell my friends without sounding like I want to leave them
Help!

Oh man! I remember when I moved from Canada to the US at 13, and that was a tremendous move. Yours is unimaginably big!

It is scary, but at the same time I can totally understand how it'd be something exciting and even to look forward to. Just tell your friends about it simply and directly. Tell them that you're excited to start a new stage in your life, but that you'll miss them tremendously and will want to spend every moment with them you can before you leave -- something that I'm sure is not far from the truth, if not exactly it.


"Want to know a secret?

You are beautiful.

Black, white, gay, straight, bisexual. Whether you are smart or quiet or impossibly in love with your best friend, someone out there cherishes your smile and gets butterflies when you walk into a room.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."

If you ever want someone to talk to, about absolutely anything, feel free to inbox me!

Re: How do I tell my friends I'm leaving? - January 20th 2011, 12:01 AM

i dont know how to really answer this, i moved from germany to America in texas. I HUGE CHANGE i will tell you, different customs, different thoughts, different everything. I left so suddenly i didnt even have time to say good bye to my friends and half of my family....so i had to grab the axiety by it's horns and just go with it. I'm a guy, so maybe it's different for girls (im not sexist) but if you cant deal with it, it deals with you. In a rather hurtful way. So ya, get the goodbyes in order, and hell through a party before you go. Take a momento, like a peice of jewelry or something not so extravaganet i took my class ring with me, even though i did not graduate their. So...ya, get ready for a LOT of new things....and have fun. (forgive me if my english is off.)
