Distance isn't a barrier for friendships, it's your attitude towards it

As you get older more of your friends will be starting to move away from you and this may be to different cities or even a different country. Most people will start getting affected by these changes after they have finished their high school education. However as I moved to London at the age of 13, I had to start dealing with having friends quite far away from me. I guess I can consider myself as lucky as I only moved to a country within Europe and not across the world. 

Now some may say that you will slowly drift away from all your friends after moving but true friends don't grow apart even if they don't talk to each other everyday. This is a quote that I've seen on the internet and I really like it just because I can relate to it so much. 

We all have busy lives and we don't always find the time to catch up with a friend but that shouldn't mean that your friendship ends there. How many of you have them days where you just sit around and don't know what to do? How much time do you waste on your long journeys to work or school/college/uni? With the technology available now it isn't difficult to stay in touch with your friends at all. It takes a minute to send a text just to ask how your friend is and if they are okay. So why let a friendship drift away like that? If you truly love your friend you will find the time, even if you don't have time to call or text them just to make sure that they are okay. Imagine it like having a passion for something. I don't really have the time to blog, I've got A Level exams to prepare for but because I am really passionate about blogging I find the time to do it and give up most of my free time for it.

I am very grateful for all my friends because they put all their effort in to contact me to ask me how I am and want to make sure that I'm alive and healthy. But not all friends will be like that, I'm not saying that I didn't loose friends after I moved. Of course I did but at least that way I was able to distinguish between my real and fake friends. At first I bothered to try contact everyone on a weekly basis but to be honest a friendship isn't supposed to be one sided so if someone didn't put the effort in to contact me then I concluded that they weren't worth my time, 

So guys what I'm trying to say is that you should never throw away good friendships, distance isn't your enemy, if you really cared about your friend you would make all the effort to stay in touch with them. At the same time if someone doesn't bother contacting you at all, they're honestly not worth your effort. 
Last but not least I would like to thank all my friends from Germany that didn't forget me after I moved and still check on me and make sure that I am alive. It has been 4 years since I moved and I am just so grateful for the amazing friends I have. So thank you guys for never forgetting about me!
