Lessons I Learnt from Long-Distance Friendships.

Okay, I promised myself that this wasn’t going to be one of those posts where I give you possible solutions to whatever I think you might be going through. But then I thought, hey, my best friend is in town for a couple more days. So it would make more sense to summarize all that fun at the end of her visit.

I don’t remember how many times I’ve mentioned this, but all of my friends live far, far away and long-distance relationship aside, it’s the friendship part that it harder to maintain. But it has taught me a lot of valuable lessons in life.

1. Conflict Resolution is a MUST!
Since most of our conversations take place over text, we often don’t manage to convey the right emotions. Maybe one of us is exhausted someday, and a few messages may come across as cold sometimes. And my overthinking self sometimes takes things too far in my own head. I learnt how to solve silly conflicts as well as big ones with my friends before it got out of hand.

2. Patience is Necessary.
Whether it comes to a long-distance relationship or a friendship, both of which I’m currently dealing with in my life, it is important to stay patient and not worry about not getting replies within a span of five minutes. It’s ridiculous to expect that of your partner or friend, especially if you live far away.

3. ALL Details Count.
When we’re telling each other about our day, we make sure that we don’t leave anything out. Messy break-ups, secret flings, crushes, partners, school drama, workplace drama, who we met, places we explored, what we ateβ€” all of it counts just as much as it would have if we were in the same city or neighbourhood.

Even if we don’t talk every day, nothing changes. Our friendship remains intact and it’s always the same affectionate bear-hugs and crazy laughter. It’s never the physical distance that ruins any kind of relationship.

Keep your friends close (to your heart).

Cheerio! Xx

    1. I wouldn’t say they’re ‘all’ about words. They’re also about a lot of patience and trust, among other things– two other things that people today do not seem to have. Words are merely just a way to communicate with each other. That being said, being in any kind of long-distance relationship teaches you to think twice before you send a text. It’s a good way to keep yourself in check.
