BFFs know NO distance!
I cried when I left for my freshman year of college (don’t lie ... you probably did too). It’s an EMOTIONAL time people.
I didn’t cry because I was going to miss my parents though (sorry mom and dad), I cried because I was ALREADY missing my best friend.
See, I’ve known my best friend since the 7th grade. We went to the same middle school and high school and there was never a weekend or summer where we didn’t spend almost every moment together. But the day had finally come where we would be separated for a long period of time.
It was a sad day knowing we might never be down the street from each other again. (TBT those days where you practically lived at your friend’s house because that’s how inseparable you were.)
By now you’ve probably learned the first and hardest lesson of moving away from your friends: distance is the TRUE test of friendship. Just because someone calls you their BFF doesn’t mean they take the "forever" part seriously.
Having a long-distance friendship takes work. And lots of it. Sadly, not everyone gets that ... but you make the effort for the people that are worth it.
Sometimes people will take you by surprise. Friends who you thought would be a part of your life forever, are now MIA. I know how incredibly heartbreaking that can be, but it only helps you to form a stronger bond with the friends who actually want to continue being friends.
And for the people that DO stick around ... I’m sure by know that you have realized that there are great upsides to having friends who live far away. Like, you always have something to look forward to. You may not know when you’ll see them next, but you’re already planning your next adventure together.
Here are 40 quotes that totally get what it’s like to have a long-distance friendship.
