Question: My best friend, EVER – she moved away. She moved to Florida today, and we live in Michigan. I can’t stop crying, I’m so sa.d The longest I’ve ever been apart from her is 2 days. She knows my heart inside and out, we do things that other people don’t normally do for fun. She’s my other half, and she’s gone. What do i do?
Answer: I’m so sorry for your loss. I know it’s really hard when people we love are far away from us. My sister is my better half and for almost all our lives she has lived far away from me (I’m talking different countries!) But times have changed. We have cell phones, email, video chat and loads of other methods for communication. (we didn’t have it when we were growing up and had to write letters which is still a fabulous way to communicate and keep in touch). The point is there is always something you can do to keep in touch. She is still in your life and can be a part of your life forever. You can go to college together. Take trips to visit each other in the summers and make other plans to see each other.
I know it’s painful now but believe me…it will get easier. Just keep in good spirits and be there for each other.
