Have you ever met a friend online that lives far away from you? Yes? Me too. I’ve met a couple of people whom I consider a very important part of my life. We share stories, tell jokes, talk about our life struggles, and overall be there for each other. Most of the time it’s great because you find other human beings who have similar interests as you do and different opinions which can give you a different perspective in the ways you see things. But, sometimes the situation where you and your long distance friend is in gets difficult or sorrowful because of how far you two are from each other.
The thought that you can’t go to the movies together or grab ice-cream and pizza is a very melancholy experience. That the most you can do is see each other from one computer screen to the other, hearing each other’s voices only through call, and not being able to physically be there for one another can get very depressing. But, that doesn’t mean friendships end just because of these unfortunate circumstances. In fact it may even strengthen the bond you two have. All I know for certain is… as long as you both think about each other and don’t give up on the friendship then anything can happen. Take advantage of social media and how easy they make it for us to communicate to people significantly further away from us. Stay strong and don’t give up!
