It sounds like you are going through a lot right now and it's very understandable. When a friend moves away, it can be very difficult to transition. Always remember, this isn't permanent. You guys have a lot of options as far as communicating goes and if your parents are open to helping, they could provide devices so that you can continue to communicate with each other. We hope that you are able to keep in touch with each other. It sounds like you had a very meaningful relationship with your friend and that's awesome to see.</span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">We have a tip that might help you to continue your friendship despite the distance:  </span><a href="/Pages/tip-surviving-long-distance-relationships.aspx"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/v2/Pages/tip-surviving-long-distance-relationships.aspx</span></a><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3"> </span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">If you are ever feeling down and needing to talk with someone, YLYV has chat and text hours available. We want to be there for you. Friendships don't stop existing because of distance so stay positive and keep communicating with each other. You will get through this, your friendship will still continue regardless of the distance between you. We hope this was helpful in some way and we look forward to hearing back from you. </span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Take care,</span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Savannah, Counselor ​</span></p></div>13
