How to prepare yourself for a friend’s move

Change is hard, especially when it’s a permanent change in your circle. Having a friend move away from you and headed to another part of the country is hard, painful, and full of unwanted change that can mess with your routine.

2020 has sure been a hard year on all of us, and many of us have nothing else except moving out, even migrating to a whole other country. Many of us can’t afford to leave so we’re here staying put, watching our friends and people leaving for good to another country.

This change/ detachment can be super draining and sad. But there’s always a place for growth, adaptation, and making it work. I mean if 2020 and quarantine taught us something new is that digital friendships are doable.

So here’s a guide on how to prepare for a friend’s departure without letting it be so hard on you:

Be as involved in the move as possible:

Even if it’s hard, it’s essential to help and support your friend’s moving process. It’s hard on both of you and, you need each other to cope with the change. So helping them pack, organizing and, the whole process of moving will help you get the “closure” you need.

Friends taking a break from packing

Before they go, create recordable memories:

The moving process doesn’t have to be a sad and emotional change. We remember the people we love by going down the memories lane. So, what better way than to start the moving process by creating new memories that you can save. Whenever we feel life is hard or that we miss them but can’t reach them we can watch those recordings.

Express your feelings with them

You may feel like you don’t want to talk about your feelings and emotions with them but, it is important to talk things through with them. They feel the same way but, you’ll work it out. You’ll find your way around and handle your friendship, long distant.

Talk about staying connected:

Technology this year was a blessing to keep all of our relationships going from a distance. Video Calls, text messages, and all social media platforms are such a blessing to be available at the tip of our hands.

Consider throwing a goodbye party

Throwing a goodbye party to your friend is the perfect fun goodbye. If you can’t throw a big party because of quarantine and the whole pandemic issue, a home gathering of you two, or even a small group of friends is a good idea!

Friends toasting with fresh juice at dinner table

Exchange thoughtful gifts

Small handmade gifts are super warm and emotional to give each other and remember each other with. a scent, a photo album, maybe a letter.

Remember distance is not a problem.

Being distant will not change your friendship status, if you are true friends, no matter how far you’ve grown apart you’ll always find your way back to each other. Maintaining a long-distance friendship is hard but, with a little more effort it’s possible.
