Separation from a friend is hard but sometimes it is for the best. For both, you and them. Find it hard to believe? It is definitely not. There are struggles, unmatched timings but in the end it is the strong bond which stays which keeps you from giving up and believe in the bond all the more.
Here are some awesome perks of having long distance best-friends. Did you call them yet?
1.) You understand what “friendship” really means.
It is hard when you separate but some years down the line, when you realise how strong the bond still is, you understand the real meaning of friendship where no formalities are required.
2.) Opportunity to visit new places.
Let’s agree unanimously on this one. You know you are going to visit your best friend someday. That’s how you get to explore a new-place that too with your best friend! Or probably even decide to meet halfway; that’s even more exciting! This is one of the best things which happen when your best friend moves to a new city.
3.) You know someone is there when everyone else bails out.
There will be times when the people around you judge you, assume things for no reason. These are the times when best friends can use their magic wand even from the distance and make you feel alright.
4.) You realise how distance is not such bad thing.
It makes you realise how important your best friends are. It makes you respect them even more. Distance does do the trick sometimes. Time-zones and missed calls make you understand how you need to prioritise.
5.) The surprise gifts. Enough said.
We all know how surprise gifts coming from a far cannot be compared to any other joy or excitement. And also if they’re abroad, calling for things you love is become a ritual! #ThankYouBestFriend.
6.) You know how “wait” feels. It teaches you patience.
Waiting for their calls on your special days, and all those days of trial and failed Skype calls when you want to tell them something super-important. It makes you wait; which ultimately teaches you good and better things things in life.
7.) The bond deepens.
There is no reason why your friendship cannot further deepen when your best friends move out from the city. You realise how your friendship has grown over the years even when you are not able to talk to them every day. You just know they are there.
8.) And, the best part is when you finally meet, you begin from where you left off!
No misunderstandings, no drama and absolutely no fights over not keeping in touch. The moment you see each other, everything is sorted and perfectly fine!
